Taiwan has some great bugs VII

We had some great bugs stop by our house this week. I caught this praying mantis hanging out by our house. (click for enlargement)

Taiwan's mantises are gorgeous and this guy looked great. When I lived in Africa I heard tales about how the locals used to tie them to their beds at night so they would snatch mosquitoes.

My daughter picked up this tiny toad about the size of a penny coin
