Giant praying mantis invades Prague

Check out this QuickTime VR of a giant praying mantis in Prague's Old Town Square. Apparently, the circus is in town.
The humanoid invaders, on extended springy legs, drove their giant insect through the Old Town amid fireballs and deep heavy funk grooves. The police stood by, trying to direct the bug to more peaceful environs, as many of the grumpier tourists nearby were rather put off their expensive goulash and roasted duck.
That building between the mantis and the large fireball is the home of the Prague Orloj, an astronomical clock that I posted about earlier this week.

I was there, it was quite a show. I especially liked their "pogo sticks", 'gotta get me a pair of those.

That is the most horrifying thing I've ever seen. If there were a giant mantis in the middle of Midtown Manhattan, I'd never leave my apartment.
