    wow! aren’t they interesting to study? when other tourists are so scared of lions and other big cats; i told them just beware of the little bugs! they are far more powerful or dangerous than a lion.

    Maybe family Amorphoscelidae,
    but you’d have to get Dino Martins to confirm.

    Apparently its a Bark Mantid, family Mantidae
    Tarochedes spp.
