Did u know?
A Common name for the order is "Praying mantises", bcoz of its typical "prayer-like" stance.In Europe, the name "praying mantis" refers to Mantis religiosa.and the most closest relatives of mantises are the termites and cockroaches. They are sometimes confused with stick/leaf insects and other elongated insects such as grasshoppers and crickets.An interesting fact about this insect is that, while they are mating, the female mantis eats the males mantis head.The female praying mantis "sexual predator or misunderstood"? still no one knows why?it maybe because of the protein in the male body that helps the eggs to develop
