#155 – “Can Praying Mantises Hop?”

"Can praying mantises hop?"
You bet they can. But they cheat at hopscotch.

On the way back from swimming lessons last night, Andrew asked, “Do you know a lot about a lot of stuff?”

I do have a pretty big knowledge of trivia, actually.  So, I said, “Yes, I do.”

The next thing Andrew asked, “Can Praying Mantises hop?”

“Yes they can,” I replied, having seen one do so.  “They can also fly.”

He dropped the subject after that, but it inspired the doodle despite Thursdays typically being a dog day.  He didn’t make the connection, though, and said to me later that he liked the robot ants.
