Large African praying mantis Praying Mantis, Mantodea (or mantises, mantes) is an order of insects that contains over 2,400 valid species. The English common name for any species in the order is "praying mantis", because of the typical "prayer-like" posture with folded fore-limbs, although the eggcorn "preying mantis" is sometimes used in reference to their predatory habits. In Europe and other regions, the name "praying mantis" refers to only a single species, Mantis religiosa.
