Praying mantises, or praying mantids, are carnivorous, meat eating insects.

Praying Mantises Praying Mantises is often misspelled as "preying mantis" a large greenish-brown predatory that survive by preying on others that why some gardeners who avoid pesticides use praying mantids as a form of pest control. Insects form the primary diet, but larger species have been known to prey on small hummingbird, snakes, lizards, frogs, rodents small enough to eat and will engage in cannibalism. They got their name because the long forelegs are raised and folded at rest, as if in prayer.
