Millipede
  Millipede November 03, 2009
Millipedes, known as shongololos in South African English, are arthropods that have two pairs of legs per segment (except for the first segment behind the head which does not have any appendages at all, and the next few which only have one pair of legs). Each segment that has two pairs of legs is a result of two single segments fused together as one. Most millipedes have very elongated cylindrical bodies, although some are flattened dorso-ventrally, while pill millipedes are shorter and can roll Millipede

Praying Mantis
  Praying Mantis September 08, 2009
Not the best pictures, but I am hoping to get some during the day so we can see the color changes. There are several different families of Praying Mantises, most of the species are in the Mantidae family. Mantises are masters of camouflage and most species make use of protective coloration to blend in with their surroundings, both to avoid predators themselves, and to better capture their victims. Various species have adapted to not only blend with the foliage, but to mimic it, a Praying Mantis

They can hover in mid-air by rapidly flapping their wings 12-90 times per second (depending on the species). They can also fly backwards, and are the only group of birds able to do so.
