Gigantic Turtle and Grasshopper/Praying Mantis?


Took these shots at Pittsburgh Zoo last month. They did a great job molding this giant turtle.
Also love this grasshopper who is standing tall at the entrance of the Kids Zoofari.

Have a god Friday everyone. Just a quick update here before I start doing laundry and later on go to my dental appointment.

  1. They are spectacular, but I must say the grasshopper looks more like a praying mantis

  6. It is a good thing they are not real or I would have been running the other way. A pleasant different take on camera critters.

  14. Wow! A giant-sized insect sure is intimidating. I'm glad they're small in real life.

  15. Both sculptures are most life-like, I'm glad we don't have insects that size any more. They were huge in the time before dinosaurs.
