Today when we were looking at the wildlife photography exhibit the gentleman running it saw our cameras and wondered if we would be interested in a praying mantis he had just noticed on a bush outside. They aren't too sharp and the video isn't the greatest, but I'm very glad I got them. Did you know that the insect order of Mantodea or mantises consists of approximately 2,000 species world-wide? It says so here on Wikipedia. There are also some excellent photos on this page. Do you think that their front claws look a bit like crab legs?
