...when someone knocks on the door, you normally expect a friend... a neighbor.... or even a vendor/sales person.
The last person you expect to come visit is the 'Bob'. Thats right. Bob the conquerer. Bob the future ruler of the world. He is really quite daunting at first glance.... and don't mention his beady eyes.... but for a praying mantis he is pretty well mannered, as long as he is not angered. ....It was nice meeting Bob, but I think the kids were a little relieved when he finally left.
I have a discovery show on my Tivo with a Preying Mantis eatting a snake... you better watch out!
