Fun facts about Praying Mantis

I was taking Maverick out and this little girl flew straight into me. We don’t see too many praying mantis but occassionally we do. This is the second one I’ve seen in as many weeks, so I looked it up to find out more info. The most common fun fact about a praying mantis is how she bites off the males head after mating. Well, if you believe what you read online, that’s true. I learned 2 new things about them…they are NOT endangered in North America, and I also learned that the green ones are the girls. The brown ones are the boys.

  1. Not to be confused with the human female who bites the heads off of their mates at least every 4 weeks 😉

  2. Interesting! My sister-in-law was bitten in the face by a green (female) praying mantis while gardening. Swelled up nasty!! I wonder whose life she took the hit for??!!! Haha
