I have never seen one except on tv. I don't even know if they live in the northeast US.

They are the yakuza of the insect world.
the yakuza of the insect world? hilarious!

i remember seeing one in my yard when i was a kid, and i'm on the Island. but that was only once. i have mad respect for them. i'll never kill one. no need to. plus, i don't want to piss off our alien overlords!!!

ah, forgot about sharks. it's amazing how some species haven't evolved almost at all. it has to be because in their environment, they are at the pinnacle of their evolution. there's nothing more then need to adapt to to be the top predator.

Praying Mantises are ****in awesome. I used to be totally obsessed with these things when I was a kid. I used to do all kinds of research on them, go out in my yard looking for them. They're crazy. I found one at work last year. It was just chillin on one of the skids in the factory. They're just so cool. Everything about them is ****in cool. Have you ever seen a little baby praying mantis? They're so tiny. And you can see right through them, they're like transparent. There's hundreds of them in one egg sac. If you hold one in your hand, they're so tiny that the wind can blow them away. It's crazy how big they get. It's like those weak ass koala bears, that have little tiny babies the size of a lima bean, then grow 1000x bigger as an adult.


My mom used to live in the Phillipines and she said that ants and praying mantises over there are like 3-4 times bigger than the ones here in the US. She said she saw a praying mantis on clothes line outside one day that was over a foot long!

Yea the biggest one I saw was at work last year it was prolly like 5-6 inches long. Mom's never lied to me though.She said they walked out to get the towels off the clothes line, and a mantis was on one of the towels, and it was almost as long as the towel was wide. She also said the ants there were ginormous. And they bite hard as hell. Fire engine red in color.

Ants are equally as cool as praying mantises. Ants are proportionally a helluva lot more intelligent than humans, and like 3x stronger. They also never sleep, and they look like aliens when magnified. Have you ever noticed that when you injure an ant, it only takes it like a minute to heal itself? Maybe I'm wrong, but I've noticed that if you flick one, or just barely smash it or something, it will curl up and shake a lot, and you can tell it's injured cuz it can't move at all, but then like a minute or 2 later it will just walk away like nothing happened.

I hear sharks have a kind of sixth sense that can detect electric pulses, like heartbeats... gnarly.
