Praying Mantis Praying Mantis is an order of insect.And mantis have more than2200 types in15 families. Malaysian orchid mantises Chinese Mantis Giant Rainforest mantis Idolomantis diabolica THE END! Description
The Chinese mantis looks like a long and slender praying mantis, that are brown and green. It is typically larger than most other praying mantises, adult females are about 8 centimeters in length, and is the largest mantis species in North America. Their color can vary from overall green to brown with a green lateral stripe on the edge of the front wings. In low light the eyes of the mantis appear black, but in daylight appear to be clear, matching the color of the head. Chinese Mantids are slightly different in color and are usually larger than Tenodera aridifolia angustipennis which were introduced to the United States of America as well. One way of telling Tenodera sinensis and Tenodera aridifolia angustipennis apart is by looking at the spot in between their front legs. If it is yellow then it is a Chinese Mantis but if it is orange then it is a Narrow-winged Mantis. This species of Giant Rainforest mantis comes from Northern Queensland in rain forest regions, it is Australia’s fattest mantis species and the females can reach up to 7cm in length males will reach 6cm. The common name of this species comes from how large the species is, mainly due to how robust they are. As nymphs they can vary in colours between green, red and brown but after the final molt they will end up green. Both males and females will have full length wings as adults but the adult females can not fly due to their size although the males being skinnier are capable. Hymenopus coronatus (known by a variety of common names including Malaysian orchid mantis, Malaysian orchid praying mantis, pink orchid mantis and orchid mantis) is a mantis from Malaysia, Indonesian, and Sumatran rain forests. These mantises thrive in humid, warm areas of south Asian rain forests. These mantids can be found on papaya trees, orchids, or frangipani trees with flowers. In captivity, the nymph's diet can consist mainly of fruit flies, but they will eat other small insects. Adults will eat anything they can catch; this includes small lizards, bees without stingers, house flies, butterflies, moths and other non-venomous flying insects. Although primarily carnivorous, orchid mantises have been observed eating little bits of banana, this behavior is thought to balance the mantis's vitamin intake through the juices of the banana (which are rich in potassium). Idolomantis diabolica is a large mantis in the Empusidae family. Females grow to be about 13 centimetres (about 5 inches) and males about 10 centimetres (about 4 inches) They are native to Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Somalia, Tanzania, and Uganda. It is one of the rarest mantids in the world, and also one of the most sought after in the world. Its threat display is magnificently colored, with red, white, blue, purple and black. Dead leaf mantis is a common name given to various species of praying mantis that mimic dead leaves. It is most often used in reference to species within genus Deroplatys because of their popularity as exotic pets. Examples include D. desiccata (giant dead leaf mantis), D. lobata (Malaysian dead leaf mantis), and D. philippinica (Philippines dead leaf mantis).[1][2] Other species to which the term may apply include Acanthops falcataria (South American dead leaf mantis),[3] A. falcata (South American dead leaf mantis), and P. paradoxa (more common known as the ghost mantis).
