Surprise for Me?!



When I got home from work on Friday, there was a box sitting on the trunk of my husbands car. I glanced at it, but went inside to say hello. He asked "did you see your present?" I told him I saw a box, so we went back to the garage and he opened the box, that strangley had holes in the side of it. Inside were some leaves and a praying mantis. We have not seen any here before and it is an amazing bug! I grabbed the camera. What a fun surprise! I love the way the bug can turn his neck it is the strangest thing. This brown and green bug turns to watch you.
The praying mantis is a carnivorous insect that will even eat a bird! Check out this link for some more fun facts on a unique bug.
