Creature Feature - Mantis

This is a Mantis hanging on the underside of a small twig.  The Mantis is a beneficial, carnivorous insect, feeding on other insects in the garden.  There are about 2000 different species of Mantids in the world, ranging in size from 1/4 inch to 6 inches in length!

The First Friday Creature Feature happens monthly only on this blog!
