death leaf mantis

Deroplatys desiccata


The Deroplatys desiccata, a rare opportunity for me to capture. He is one of many different unusual spices which habitat is the Bug zoo and butterfly museum at Butterfly world, Florida. Entering this facility gives a vibe of seriousness and silent. The walls are framed with all kind of butterfly spices from all around the world. The bug zoo is a small space where behind glass u can up-serve the behavior and habitat of the animal(s)

Great spotting! When you upload photos, to the right about half way down, you will see a place where you can put a wikipedia link. To join a mission, go to the missions tab that you see when you are on the organisms page; if you click on global missions, you will see a list and you can join those you like. Hope that helps a bit in navigating the site. :)
