Today while paying for my batteries at Radio Shack in Stillwater, I noticed on the counter a large model (or robot?) of an insect about 4 1/2 inches long. As I queried the clerk about the device. He said It was live and had been a visitor for several days. As we talked it very slowly turned about to face me. I leaned close and moved my head back and forth sideways. It followed my movements carefully. It didn't react fearfully when I touched it. Later climbed slowly on the clerks hand for a better look at me. Now I was surprised that Mantis could be that large, or that friendly. What's with these kind creatures?
