The praying mantis belongs to an order of insects – mantidae -- which contains approximately 2,200 species in 15 families worldwide in temperate and tropical habitats. Many different varieties live in Spain. 1. The Latin name for ‘praying mantis’ is Mantis religiosa; it got its colloquial name because of its typical prayer-like stance. 2. The term mantis derives from the Greek word for prophet.

3. Larger species have been known to prey on small lizards, frogs, birds, snakes, fish, and even rodents; most species of mantis are known to engage in cannibalism. 4. They can not only blend with the foliage, but mimic it, appearing as either living or withered leaves, sticks, tree of blades bark, grass, flowers, or even stones. Some species in Africa and Australia are even able to turn black following a bushfire to blend in with the fire ravaged landscape.
