"CURIOUS" PRAYING MANTIS
Praying mantises, or praying mantids, are carnivorous insects. There are about 2,000 different types of mantids. The biggest are over 15 cm long and the smallest are about 1 cm long. Mantids are found in warm to hot places in most continents of the world. It gets its name from the way it holds its front forelegs up as though it is praying.
