I just love those little green guys! They are so sweet and handsome. :) We used to see them occasionally at out old house, but now that we're back in the 'burbs again they might be a little harder to come by. It's neat your kids got to spend some time with one. :)
Like those pictures, especially the 4th one down.
AHH! He looked HUGE in those first few pics. Then there was the one of him and your little one. Deep breathe. EWW!
Thisi post makes me laugh. My little sister--who is 27, by the way--is terrified of praying mantises. I think she would die if I showed her these pictures!!
Which encyclopedia do you use? I've been looking for a good animal one.
