Garden Variety Bugs?

 Saw this giant ant on the side of a hill at Papago Park, but it wasn't on the park's side of the fence, it was in the Desert Botanical Gardens.
Along with a number of other oversized bugs. Here's the praying mantis near the entrance.
It is made entirely out of wood. 

The ant wasn't alone (are they ever?) on the hill.
 Closer look:

Giant spider and web!

There were other bugs, but I'll leave them for others to discover...
