They remind me of miniature versions of some of the aliens that Hollywood portrays.

Very interesting indeed.

hey its kung fu!

for reals, how can we know that all insects and animals developed from this earth?

I mean they say humans are from here because we evolved from monkeys or from the bible, but what about everything else? how can we be so sure that a beatle was created by earth?

I wonder, if Manti were the size of alien/predator...

Who would win?

Nice pictures. I wasn't aware that I could order from the internet Praying Mantises to plant in my garden to hatch in the spring to kill all of those smaller bugs that eat my beans, and some other crop leaves. Excellent garden protectors. One can also order Lady Bugs before spring and simply plant them in the ground for your garden disease health protection, naturally.

Insects are fascinating looking, but you are aware that there is a physical size limitation of exoskeletal land creatures, one thing old SCI-FI movies get wrong, but never leaned on gravitational differences to explain how that could possibly be, if in fact it could be knowing a bit of the chemistry about carbon based life forms and structure.
