The praying mantis is a fearsome predator, eating insects many times its own size, as well as the occasional mouse, salamander, and even hummingbird! Hungry mantises may even gobble up other mantises. This book details the life cycle of these fascinating carnivores, from birth through various molts and into adulthood.
