Every now and then, a non-canine critter wanders into my dog training facility. I decided to hold on to this one for a few days, so the kids could watch it (that’s the story I’m sticking to).

This is an adult female praying mantis, presumably toward the end of her six month life span. I bought her some crickets to munch on, and built her a small habitat.

I think she’s incredibly cool, and it’s getting cold outside. Not sure if I should release her back to the mean streets or not. But leaning toward doing so tomorrow.
