Mantis Thursday

It's become a Thursday tradition.

Thursdays, after school, I take MiniWarrior to the parking lot of I-HOP restaurant and we go a bug huntin'.

We scored big on this Thursdays hunt.

Two Preying Mantis and two grasshoppers.

(Sorry Mrs X)

That's one fine looking habitat. Great photos!! But that poor grasshopper!!!!!! Mantie seems nice enough bit I'd keep an eye on Sid with those beady eyes of his!!

Hope you have a great weekend

I love Sid peeking! It makes me almost want to forgive him for being a creepy (yet momentarily endearing) bug!

Wow. I'm thinkin' if there are THAT many bugs in the PARKING LOT of the i-Hop, then just how many are inside the restaurant? Just sayin'. ;)

I was wondering what the kitty cats thought. I love that last pic.

Laochie: Guido is a grand feline :)

Bob-a-roo: Don't let Manties innocent look fool you :| he's been eyeballin Sid's head...and plotting dinner....


LaChanson: I know--he looks cute, doesnt he?? Almost makes you forget he's gonna be chompin on a grasshoppers head for dinner...

SomeGirl: hahaha! Yeah...probably not the best advertisement for a restaurant!! :D

here is an idea: after Mantis finishes off Hopper, let Guido teach him a lesson about torturing.

My little Cairn Terrier 'Bonnie' (the bird killer!) loves to catch those huge brown grasshoppers and torture them. Once the legs are gone so is the fun! She's EVIL I tell ya!! But soooo cute!!
