A Praying Mantis is almost always a preying mantis.They are excellent hunters, with their long back legs and flexible tail help to maintain balance, for when any other small insect such as a bee, fly, small moths or very rarely small birds happen to pass by! We found this male Praying mantis at Fort Loudon near our house, took it home and started to feed and water it, in other words we had our own pet alien.

At first we were all a little bit afraid to even touch it, but finally we overcame our fear and started holding it all the time!    

We were outside one day and found this green Chinese Mantis in our garden. We held it a little and set him free again.

Here is a video of one when threatened.
