    Lovely praying mantis! Yeah, they don't really bite humans, at worst they'll grab your finger with their arms and grip, it just kinda pinches though, they are scary looking because they're so big and have those scythe arms, and they can fly, but they're awesome at catching other bugs. They can snatch bees right out of the air! I hope she doesn't darken your door again soon heh

    I found one and put him in my computer room and he hung out and hid for a week. I figured he wasn't getting enough bugs to eat when I found him again so I took him outside and put him in a hanging flower pot with lots of flowers and bugs to eat. He hung out in it for a week chowing down and trying to hide and eventually moved on but he was a beautiful bright green and his eyes always looked like they had irises looking right at you. He wasn't aggressive towards me at all.
