Movie of Praying Manits

Praying Mantis for info about them:

Approximately 2,200 species in nine families worldwide.

Eye-spitters is what we called them as kids. We had been told that if they spit in your eye you would go blind. We used to see them in North Florida often. One day we kids were standing around looking at one, from a distance. A man walked into the yard wanting daddy. He asked us what we were doing. We told him. He said, “I guess maybe they could make you blind if they could actually spit in your eye.” It sure made me feel rather silly.

Anyway, here is a photo I took of one today.
