Explore popular pictures of insects, and you're bound to find the mantis. Easily recognized by their distinctive "praying" forelegs and triangular face, these bugs eat pests with such aggression that they inspired two Chinese martial art styles. Mantises are even pampered as exotic pets by their devoted fans, unlike their closest relatives, cockroaches and termites. More than 2,400 species comprise their Mantodea order, including the uniquely camouflaged ones that mimic vegetation. - Flickr Blog See more galleries: Assorted Animal Shots | Marine Creatures
