We had friends over for dinner last night and, thankfully after dining, conversation turned to the gargantuan crocodile caught in the Philippines. This led onto chatter about the oddities of nature in general, especially the comical Blobfish, a creature so ludicrous you couldn't make it up. Then this morning the Sympatico website was carrying a clip of film of a creature I had never previously encountered, something so crazy I can barely believe my eyes: the Devil's Flower Mantis. So, take a look at this piece of film and then try to tell me that he isn't the most astonishing insectidude you've ever seen! Look at those legs! What the HELL?!
