Today we "unleashed" nearly 400 praying mantises! The girls couldn't stop talking about them and it led to some great discussions! They learned so much and we had FUN!
I have a few fun pictures for you, but first I wanted to share some interesting facts about praying mantises...because I know you are dying to know:)
*These carnivorous insects can turn their heads up to 180 degrees in search of insects (food).
*A praying mantis can see up to 60 feet away
*They live about 12 months
*There are about 1,800 species
*Species in Asia can reach up to 10 inches long!
Here are some pictures from The Moffatt Girls! I will admit...they gave me the creeps! I still feel a little itchy when I think about them:)
