This is a fantastic lifelike Praying Mantis plush toy. It would also make a stunning decoration in the corner of your room!
Praying Mantises can see in 3D! They have a stereo vision and thanks to the placement of their eyes they have a wide field of vision.
They only eat live food so they can provide helpful pest control to gardeners as they eat potentially destructive beetles, crickets and grasshoppers. But they don’t really care what live bug they eat as they are also known to prey on helpful insects like native bees and butterflies. Believe it or not, some praying mantises are known to prey on hummingbirds, sunbirds, honeyeaters and frogs and lizards! Such a big appetite for such a small bug!
They are also masters of disguise. Have you read our article on the orchid mantis? Check it out here.
