This Mantis insect is difficult to see, because of it's
perfectly matching texture. See the image below to see this
insect clearly.

well with the background. Because of it's posture, they
are also called as Praying Mantis.

  2. When a Mantis has its front legs(feet) together, it looks like it's praying. But really, it's preying!! ;-)
