Praying Mantis

A few weeks ago I found a praying mantis on the laundry room window! We rarely see praying mantises so this was a real treat for us.
I think it is a male common praying mantis.

Whenever we tried to touch it, it would try to
get us with its long front legs.

The weird thing was, that on the same day I found the praying mantis, a show about praying mantises was on for the first time!


  1. That's cool. We have praying mantis bugs down here, too

  2. What color is this? The ones in Michigan are usually green.

  3. I think it is a male, thats why it's not green. Or it could be a different type than the ones in Michigan.
