The Mantid family is often referred to as the Mantis family, which is incorrect. Mantises, praying or otherwise, are actually a small family within the overall Mantid realm that has over 2,400 branches.
Mantids live all over the world and are a friend to the farmer. They eat other bugs that want to eat up the crops before they can be harvested. A formidable foe, the Mantids are masters of camouflage and can grow to a length of ten-inches. Watch the video from Dr. Brady Barr for more info!
