So today I’m going to be talking about the Praying Mantis. The Praying Mantis is about 0.5 to 6 inches long. Their lifespan is about 12 months some can even live for a year. Mantises are mostly found in bushy fields and gardens. Praying Mantis have excellent eye sight and they can see up to 60 feet away!! These creatures are carnivores, they eat Aphids, Mosquitoes, Flies, roaches, bees, crickets, butterflies, grasshoppers, beetles, and spiders. Praying mantises is the ONLY bug that can turn its head side to side to side 180 degrees. During or after the Praying Mantises are mating, the female Praying Mantis EATS the males head. A Praying Mantis has just a single ear, it is located on the underside of its belly.
