Look Who's Home

Look who decided to pay an unusual visit to my home. I was back in Singapore and this was indeed my very first guest at home. A large green praying mantis.

She seemed to have just had a meal as her abdomen was bulging and she was 'licking her fingers'. Guess KFC could feature her saying "It's finger lickin' good"!

Hi Shawn,

I happen to have 2 books by author Francis-seow choen, the 1st being
1) An illustrated Guide to the Stick and Leaf insects of Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore
2) A guide to the stick and leaf insects of Singapore

which I have no use of (and they're brand new!) but I didn't want to just chuck it out into the bin so I thought I'd google to find a society in Sg I could donate it to and I then chanced upon your blog. If you'd like them for free you can email me at tangmeida@hotmail.com
and we can arrange to pass them to you. Cheers

Hmm. She could also have recently mated as her abdomen could be bloated with eggs.

Thanks guys for your comments! Appreciate it, really! :D

Anonymous, thanks for your offer but it's alright. I don't think I really need them.
