1269 Photos: Praying Mantis

August 21, 2019

Praying Mantis Facts:

  • The Praying Mantis can rotate its head 360 degrees!
  • Praying Mantis’ are carnivores! They mostly eat other insects, but larger mantis’ can eat small frogs and even birds. I’ve watched a praying mantis attack and eat a stink bug!
  • There are over 2000 species of Praying Mantis’ and they are closely related to cockroaches and termites.
  • When capturing pray, they typically bite their head off, this way they (the prey) can’t get away. The female will bite the males head off after mating! Siblings often eat each other.
  • Praying Mantis’ typically only live about a year (spring to fall, really).

I know this photo looks like the same photo as one earlier in the post. It is not – the praying mantis is further away in this photo!

  • Seeing a praying mantis may be a symbol of good luck!

Today is Brazilian Blow Out Day and National Senior Citizens Day! Have Fun!!

Hope everyone has a great day, night or evening where ever you are!
