Awww... I understand the others, but why would you want to squish the mantids? They`re actually very clean and rather intelligent for something with naught but a simple brain...

That was cool. I hope at least some of those were edible, I have a new found interest in eating insects.

My friend has all these weird bugs around her home, but they`re all dead. She claims they look humanoid, which I guess they kind of do, but they also look like some form of cricket.

I think any bug can look alien-like, if you want it to.

Ha! The second one was cute! It was like it was waving.

God I feel like such a baby...
I felt like screaming when I saw those close ups of bugs I was so scared. >____<;
I thought I only hated them because they are small and you don`t know where they might be. But nope, they are just as creepy big...even more so. O_O

Aww those ones were all adorable.

Just keep pictures of ants, centipedes, and millipedes away from me and I`m pretty much good.

Of all the mantids, they show one which is the most common around?! (chinese mantis) - flawed list... weevils and some of the spiders have far more exaggerated carapaces!
First mantid is a chinese mantis: t. sinensis
Second mantid is a spiny flower mantis: p whalbergii
third mantis is a violin mantis: g.gongylodes

look them up on google, pics are way nicer there

We had a whole bunch of giant mantis bugs were we used to live. It`s kinda scary when they fly at your face.

When I was raising mantids I used to get as close as I could to them and check out all their neat features. Yaay bugs!

I love stuff like this. What scared me was how self-concious and horribly unfunny the captions were.

Awesomo, just remember, you`ll probably be sending in applications, for jobs, to nerds.
Then they`ll think "Oh, this guy beat me up in high school." Then guess what?
No job for you!
