Yeah I found one of these in our shop at work this week he did not like me being around! He was about 2 inches or so in diameter and could move very briskly!

We catch them and put them outside.

I was pulling through a security gate one night where I work ..... riding in on the driver’s side mirror on my F250 was a brown praying mantis.... it was as tall as my hand, fingertips to the bottom of my palm!!!! It was a real monster, and I haven’t seen one that size since.

That was a female.   They are usually larger and more scary than the males.  :hide:

Supposedly the female usually eats the male after they mate.

I'm going to second that on two premises. One is that I understand twisted all too well. The other is that I agreed Richie is correct.

Here's another friend that showed up in the shop. Not sure what this one is. At first I thought it was a worm but I've never seen a worm move this fast! :confusion-confused:

Can't watch the video but perhaps it's the legendary "wormius speedius"?

Known to inhabit racing pits...

This was a couple of years ago.

My wife has no fear of God's creatures so I told her the Cicada will scream like a woman if she grabs it.

I heard the scream LoL

Working on my tractor by the shop and all of a sudden I lost a little connector for the choke and it fell down into where the water flows through. When I looked down to pick it up this guy was staring back st me ! He was much bigger around than a silver dollar and did look mean!

Our stick bug came back for a visit the other day. 

Largest one I've seen. 4" clapboards so it's about that long.

What is really strange is when I was stirring around with a stick I noticed a couple of skeletal remains of some small and I mean very small creature!
