The Praying Mantis is named for its prominent front legs, which are bent and held together at an angle that suggests the position of prayer ~ and the enhanced facial features of this photo make it look almost human.
Devils Flower Mantis . An Idolomantis diabolica mantis can get stressed by being handled and by being disturbed by people or pets close to its enclosure. When not disturbed this species is very quiet and will generally not move. It will grab prey insects quickly when they come close by, but they generally will not move to stalk them. They are a true sit-and-wait predator.
