Caption: Praying mantis. Camouflaged praying mantis (Ameles spallanzania) upside down (centre) on a plant. Mantids are carnivorous insects that lie in wait for their prey, before grabbing them with serrated front legs. Although female mantids are known for eating the male after copulation, this species is not cannibalistic.
