The praying mantis is in the family of Mantidae.  They live all over the world, especially in North and South America.

When a praying mantis is young, they eat small things such as tiny flies or even it’s its own siblings!!!

As a praying mantis becomes older, it eats bigger things such as Bushbrown butterflies.  You can find out more about the praying  mantis here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mantis

That is all for now!
