Look what Jaz found

Jaz found this praying mantis in the backyard. I don't think I've ever seen one before. Dunno if he just has one eye or has it shut really tight.

I think they are so cool looking! Did you know that the female praying mantis actually eats the male after they mate? I learned that from the movie "9 Months." :)

Aren't they weird?!? Where I grew up, they were everywhere. Funny that you've never seen one!

Yep its kind of like bees, they kill the males after mating also. Very cool that she found one.
