The Praying Mantis is a tiny insect, resembling some prehistoric monster or mythical dragon, but it possesses some alarming qualities. It can lift 24 times its own body weight. In human terms, this would mean a man of 120 pounds being able to easily shoulder a ton. The Praying Mantis is carnivorous by nature; even consuming their own kind. During the act of mating, the female will turn her head around, not only killing him, but devouring him as well…digesting him bit by bit. These are common attributes that make the species remarkable.
