Further proof that Iki is one of the creepiest/most awesome places on Earth. We really do have gigantic bugs here! This praying mantis was about the length of my hand (though I grant you, I have pretty small hands). I discovered it hanging out in the girls’ bathroom at one of my schools. His (her?) eyes were crazy cool to look at. Glassy and transparent and mesmerizing… too bad my iPhone didn’t do it justice!
