Martin’s Migration

Hey, my name is Martin. Apparently I’m on the internet now, so I thought I should explain myself.

In the video you saw, I was actually just visiting my  cousin, Marcus, and I overheard a conversation on a boat called Almost Free saying they were going to the island where he lived, so I packed my things (Which didn’t take long) and hopped on board the previous night so they wouldn’t stare at me all the time.

The next day, exactly that happened. I had just found a comfortable pole when suddenly this small human with a camera comes along and starts filming me and saying he’s called David Attenborough even though he’s called Julian by the other humans. At this point I tried to turn my head the other way, but he followed me, so I just sat there waiting for him to go away. He took a whole 5 minutes. Ugh.

When we arrived at the island, I was wondering how I was going to get onto the island because instead of parking on the beach, we were just off the island. I saw a small boat and hoped they would take me there in that, but no. The big male shoves me into a small container for 5 minutes, eventually I got out though, so I was happy. My experience with humans is never really brilliant but I don’t care as long as I don’t get interrupted.

I’m Martin the Mantis. By the way if you’re thinking all mantises have names beginning with m then you are correct. I don’t know why but Mother Mantis told me so I’ll believe her.
