Sphodromantis gastrica aka Giant Green Mantis

Actually I must say these bugs have never fascinated me. Simple for the fact they are big, and they look kinda scary! This one has landed in my aunt's leg, and she very scared throw it away to the land. I saw it and took these pics before it flies away again.

      A louva-Deus também me fascina. Imagino que ambas, (a tia e a louve-Deus) ficaram ambas assustadas. Belas linhas.

      Na minha opinião, os insectos possuem a vanguarda de estilo, linhas, cores, etc etc etc...

      Este set é um bom exemplo disso!

      Well, I don't blame your aunt....I wouldn't want one to land on me either! I guess it was okay if it flew away after it landed. These are great shots of a very interesting insect, Ricky!

      OMG those are my FAVORITE.. they are soo creepy looking.. one time I bought two egg sacks full of them 200 in each egg or something close to that number.. and I left them in my room thinking it still had time to hatch and they all hatched while i was gone and I had them ALLLL over my room and my bed and clothes.. HUNDREDS it was soo gross and I had to pick up each individual one and put them in a plastic cage!
