Artist's Description

The praying mantids, or praying mantises, are carnivorous insects that belong to the family. There are about 2,000 species of mantids. The biggest praying mantises are the Tenodera and the Archimantis, which are six inches long!
Praying mantises are about 2/5-12 inches according to species. Their colors vary, ranging from light greens to pinks. Most mantids are pea green or brown.
The name “mantis” comes from the Greek word for ‘prophet’ or ‘soothsayer.’ The Carolina mantid is a common insect of Eastern United States.
