    I'm not a creepy-crawley person, but I have to admit he has a sweet little face, even though he has the eyes of a heartless killer . . . :)

    DKdream-Some live longer than others.Peacock mantids usually only live a year.

    I think it looks like a little cartoon mouse - the compound eyes lock like mouse ears . . . :)
