I've been keeping an eye on a small brown praying mantis. It is really fast and can catch small flies sometimes. I've tried to feed it but not successfully. Larry has decided to speak Spanish to it. He doesn't really speak Spanish other than a few phrases he picked up at the bowling alley...friendly-sounding stuff. The praying mantis doesn't seem to talk back, but when I misted it, it wiped its eyes. Cute.
