Mantis Oothecae (Egg Case) Care

Posted 04-21-2012 at 09:19 AM by pssh

It just sometimes seems like there are an enormous number of ignorant [insert rude word here] people in the world. And as much as I can appreciate, on the one hand, that not everyone is like me, that a variety of perspectives is a good thing ... on the other hand....
