Weekly Puzzler Answer #66

Hello and happy weekend! For those who were at my Little Wonders program last night, this now is an easy one, right? The only animal on earth with ONE ear is the Praying Mantis. Scientists discovered that they have a single ear in the middle of their thorax–a fact that is helpful if they want to avoid being eaten by bats. Check out the longer article about this HERE from the National Wildlife Federation.


And have you heard that “fact” that every time a praying mantis mates, the female eats the male? Click HERE to learn whether or not that is indeed FACT, or is it FICTION?

Have a great weekend! HERE is the next puzzler.
