Praying Mantis

Description:

This active green praying mantis was approx. 8 cm (3.1 inches) long. He later had a 'showdown' with our Beagle; however much the dog howled at him, we had the distinct feeling that the insect was intimidating the canine!! Mantis - 1; Mutt - 0 :-)

Habitat:

Hills overlooking Manila.
