|starlight - OMG!
I've only seen rattlesnakes while hiking - never near to home!
I know the small ones are just as poisonous as the large ones, though!
As for that mantis.... I rescued one from the back of my pickup truck (with camper shell) THREE TIMES one summer. By the 3rd time, she was looking really really ragged. It was HOT in there! I could not figure out why she kept going back in. THEN I realized I still had some weeds back there I had pulled from a friend's yard. Sure enough, her egg case was in there! I felt awful. If I had realized that in the first place, I would have relocated the egg case to a safe place - it and she would have been safe....
