TheEuropean mantis (Mantis religiosa) is a largehemimetabolic insect in the family of theMantidae ('mantids'), which is the largest family of the orderMantodea (mantises).Their common namepraying mantis is derived from the distinctive posture of the first pair of legs that can be observed in animals in repose. It resembles apraying attitude. Both males and females have elongated bodies with two pairs of wings. The most striking features that all Mantodea share are a very mobile, triangular head with largecompound eyes and their first pair of legs (the 'raptorial legs'), which is highly modified for the efficient capture and restraint of fast-moving or flying prey.
