Praying Mantids, Order Mantodea

Praying Mantids are efficient predators, catching and munching on anything they think they can tackle. They are vaguely stick insect-like in appearance, but are distinguished by the modified front limbs, which can spring out to grasp and manipulate their prey. When folded up, they give the appearance of 'praying' and thus the common name.
