Praying Mantis Facts

The Praying Mantis was named for it’s front legs, that are bent and make the insect look like its praying.  
 
These insects have a long neck and are the only bug that can turn their heads without moving their body.
 
Females usually lay hundreds of eggs, at one time, in a small sack. The Praying Mantis uses its spiked front legs for grabbing it prey (usually moths, crickets, grasshoppers, flies, and other insects).
