I'll try again with Honey the Springer Spaniel :) Got this pic whilst we were at a friends with her. She's my partners dog. Bad pictures as they were taken on my phone not my camera.

This is my first time ever entering in one of these competitions....
But every time I bump into someone while walking Sandy, there is just a shower of compliments about how beautiful she is, so I at least have a tiny bit of confidence!

Larry is interesting, where do you keep him, or does he live in your garden?

I caught him when I was walking my dogs, he had grabbed onto one of their tails and was really spooking her. I bent down to see what she was whining a bout and this little green thing had caught my eye. It was Larry. He crawled on my arm and Soon was living in one of my empty terrariums ( kind of like a land fish tank ) until last Thursday when I released him. I fed him crickets and he quickly came adjusted to life in captivity. Of course he spent about 6 hours a day sitting on my shoulder as I went about my daily business. Never once tried to escape, I think he liked me. RCA, I want you to YouTube praying mantis hunting. It is so cool to watch!!!

They look like "butter wouldn't melt..." but what a mean eating machine!  Found this as a general good video, but also saw one try to kill a snake!  Just as well he "liked" you :)

Kewl video. I wanna see the rest of that series so bad right now lol. I've had first hand experience of just how sharp those spiky arms are: one time I was holding a dead cricket in front of him and waving it back and forth like It was alive. Well let's just say he missed....
He also enjoyed climbing up on my computer to attack the mouse as it went about posting on TFF.

Word to the wise, don't let a mantis drink your blood ( such a dumb idea of mine to let Larry do that. He started chewing on my skin and left a big hole in my arm ) as it hurts.... Alot.
