A mantid is called a praying mantis because it looks like it is praying. Its color depends on where it lives. It has wings and can fly. It can leap, too. Mantids eat insects, including other mantids. They can even get small tree frogs. It is 2 to 5 inches long. Most mantids live in warm climates. A mantid uses its front legs to catch prey. Its legs have sharp spines and hooks to hold prey. Mantids are helpful to humans because they eat harmful bugs.
