Okay, if you cannot stand bugs this is not the post for you! Just a warning.
But this isn’t a grossout post, it’s a cute post.
I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned that we have walking sticks in my library. Well, we do.
The last adult stick died just as the little baby ones were hatching, so the wee ones have been all by themselves, with no one but us gigantic people looking after them in their little tank.
Well, The Library Assistant saw a small fake praying mantis on sale when she was on a trip, and she brought it back so the sticks would have companionship and someone to turn to.
A couple of days ago, I saw this:
That’s probably the first time we’ve seen one of the sticks bonding with Fred.
(Fred is the fake mantis.)
TLA and I just thought it was the most adorable thing and we whipped out our phones and snapped pictures. LOL!
Sorry for the absence everyone! I’m not abandoning you, I swear!
In fact, I have some great news to post later today. Well, it’s on my Twitter feed, but if you remember what happened the last time I got this kind of news, you know what’s coming.
(Don’t worry, it’s good!)
