Information about the Praying Mantis:

Praying Mantis grow to be about 3 inches with a large head and abdomen. They have a pair of large forelegs that are serrated and spiny and folded back like a pocket knife. They hold their forelegs up in a praying position to grab prey. Adult males are smaller and more slender than females, and have longer wings. Praying mantids are highly predacious and feed on a variety of insects, including famously the females on the males after mating. They are the only insect that can turn its head.
