    Igor Siwanowicz When the praying mantis (Rhombodera basalis) feels threatened, she transforms herself into a dancing alien. This species, native to Malaysia, grows to be as much as 10 centimeters. When the mantis goes into her famous praying pose, she's not paying tribute to a higher authority, but getting ready to spring on its prey.

    This is the Brazilian Treehopper, or Bocydium globulare - a real living insect, which only pretends to be an alien helicopter. Its other name is "The Bell Bearer"; the "Globulare" part of its Latin moniker stands for these utterly bizarre spheroids on the top (they are not antennae!).
