Praying Mantis Egg Sack Hatching

Here is the Praying Mantis Egg Sack Hatching. It was very interesting watching it hatch. The little Praying Mantis come wiggling out and they are shaped like a worm. Then when they wiggle out of the sack, their eyes start to bulge out on the sides of their heads and they pull their legs away from their body. It was so neat to watch them hatch.

A Day at the Zoo

A Day at the Pittsburgh Zoo!


































This is my favorite picture of the day. We were in the Water's Edge, where they have the underwater tunnels and I took a picture of the shark as it was swimming above me. So the shark looks like it is swimming in the sky.
