Woman Finds Gorgeous ‘Flower Mantis’ That Looks Just Like A Flower Living in Her Garden

A woman named Margaret Neville in South Africa, made a fascinating discovery in her back garden, among her lavender bushes was a flower mantis, a type of praying mantis which has evolved to appear incredibly “floral” as a method of camouflage. The flower is a female with a large swirl pattern on her back and protrusions that look like lavender buds along her legs. Astonished by the insect’s beauty, Neville named the mantis “Miss Frilly Pants” in reference to her purple “pantaloons.”
“Nature is there for us all to share,” Neville tells My Modern Met. After sharing her discovery, Miss Frilly Pants now has many fans across the world. Images and video of Miss Frilly Pants can also be seen on the Waterfall Retreat & Environmental Centre Facebook page. In late September, the page announced that the unusual mantis found a mate—a male flower mantis.

While the females’ appearance is a colorful trap, males must hunt rather than lie in wait. Evolutionary researchers believe this divergence in gendered hunting strategies and its effect on evolution is singular among arthropods (spiders and insects).

The lyrical name “Miss Frilly Pants” is fitting for a flower mantis. Other mantis species have inventive names, including the “Wandering Violin Mantis,” “Arizona Unicorn Mantis,” and “Devils Flower Mantis.” It’s simply undeniable that Miss Frilly Pants and her fellow mantis species look as whimsical as their names suggest.


The World’s Largest Sea Turtle Pops Out And Emerges From Ocean – Leaves Everyone Open Mouthed

Turtles are reptiles of the order Chelonia or Testudines. They are characterized by a special bony or cartilaginous shell developed from their ribs that acts as a shield. Colloquially, the word “turtle” is generally restricted to fresh-water and sea-dwelling Testudines. An utterly massive leatherback turtle washed ashore one afternoon, people came from far and wide to check it out. They had no idea they were looking at the world’s largest species.
It could be easy to assume the turtle here was a male due to his size, but the Oceana website explains that female leatherbacks are the only ones to go ashore. They said: “Leatherbacks spend almost all of their time in the ocean with females only coming to shore to lay eggs. For that reason, from the time they hatch and enter the surf, males will never be out of the water again and are therefore more difficult to study than females.

“Leatherback turtles are known to travel incredibly long distances during their lifetimes. In some cases, individuals may travel across entire ocean basins (e.g., the entire Pacific Ocean), after they hatch, in order to reach juvenile feeding grounds. Throughout its lifetime, a leatherback turtle may cross the ocean several times, traveling to and from preferred feeding or nesting sites. Like other marine turtles, leatherback turtles return to the region where they hatched to mate and nest.”

These incredible creatures travel thousands of miles over the course of their lives, even though some of the largest leatherbacks can grow to be over seven feet long and more than 2,000 pounds. Their size doesn’t stop them from scouring the planet for the best feeding, mating and playing grounds! Take a look at this massive leatherback here:

“The inspiration just comes from loving dogs and knowing that you are not only saving a life, but when rescuing a dog you are allowing the space for other rescues to possibly get adopted too. It’s a win-win and a beautiful feeling,” said Asher.

After quitting his job he bought a RV and he went off on a adventure to save dogs around the country, along with him are the six adopted pooches Asher rescued. He goal is to visit the shelters and rescuing as many animals as he can in 48 states.

“I’m not even close to being finished,” Asher said. “The end, end goal is to clear the shelters.”

Mother Bear Takes Her Little Babies For a Swim in Californian Lake in The Middle of The Day

It is pretty sure that no-one would expect to meet a bear family that swims inside along with people. There were a lot of people that gathered to see the ordeal, but the Bear family didn’t mind in fact they spent some quality time splashing each other.
The baby bears seemed to enjoy the water and were playing excitedly with each other. It seemed like they were used to playing on the water, the family wasn’t bothered at all by all those people gathered around them and recording the adorable sight.
The mother bear and her two cubs left the water after some minutes of splashing, they went through the beach as if it’s completely normal for them to be there and then they went inside the woods.
It’s the strong bond between mother and cub that likely would have prompted the little one to stay on its mothers back in the water.

As the bear waded into the water, the cubs likely scrambled onto its back to follow. The sloth bear is the only known bear that actively carries its cubs, an adaptation that it evolved to protect its young in tiger-inhabited regions.
Brown bears have a well-documented love of the water. A live bear cam at Brooks Falls in Alaska’s Katmai National Park has documented bears wading through fast-moving waters to catch salmon. According to Katmai’s website, bears often sit in what the park has dubbed “Jacuzzis” waiting for fish to swim by.
