Stunning insects in North America!

We have had a great tour so far! Yesterday I was quite high, like I was on drugs. I saw my first Praying Mantis! Do you know how cool they are?! I almost could't sleep last night, I was so happy :) They are very impressive and formidable predators, camouflage experts and they can swivel their head 180 degrees to spot a potential prey. This is just a few of the interesting things about these insects! There are about 2400 different species in the order Mantodea. Check out these links, you will not regret a click, at least not on the first two ones!

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
