Boy found this monster in our basement stairwell. He and Firstborn ran to me to tell me about it. I grabbed the camera.
He didn't have a laser on his forehead but he was ill-tempered.
Note to Blogger: I ain't at all happy that the photo uploader feature does not work in any of the 3 web browsers on my OSX 10.2.8 Mac. That would include Safari, Nutscrape 7, and IE 6. One way or another I was thwarted and had to sneaker-net the mantis image from the Mac to the notebook to get it uploaded.
