Bug Girl

The Most Unusual Pet

Each fall, our Bug Girl Liz finds a praying mantis. The first time she caught one, we researched these fascinating bugs and learned that they could be kept as pets. We trained the mantis to trust us by feeding her live grasshoppers that we catch. (She has an easy life now!) She loves to come out of her cage and watch TV. Her favorite place to sit is on Liz's head where she has a "Bird's Eye" view of what's happening without the danger of a bird getting her.
