Some pictures of a mantis that was saved from my Grandma's cats today. Poor thing was brought inside, then released into some plants at my house. It bled (is that what you would call that green stuff) inside, but firmly attached to the plant. When I went to check on it later, it was gone. I can only hope it survived and found a good place to hide. :)

What do you all think?

Also, sorry I haven't been on much lately. Been to distracted with work and video games. (Particularly Halo Reach, which just came out) ;)

Great shots.

Yes one of my cats will eat anything that moves (spiders, woodlice...) and quite a few things that don't move (breadcrumbs, any small bit of paper or plastic you might drop, even a paper clip, you have to be fast on your feat to avoid a trip to the vet...).

Thanks, guys!

I think I might try to make a whitebox since I like these. They were just taken on a napkin. LOL!
