Mantis, an insect in the family Mantidae, feeds on other insects by grasping the prey with stout, spiny forelegs. The insect usually assumes a position with its forelegs held up together as if praying. This bug-eyed creature with slender body was found recently in an orange tree waiting for something to grab.Mantis, an insect in the family Mantidae, feeds on other insects by grasping the prey with stout, spiny forelegs.
