Insects/Bugs/Bees/Butterflies - Mantids/Praying Mantis - Carolina Mantis
Class:Insecta Order:Mantodea Family:Stagmomantis Genus:carolina


I found my first Carolina Mantis in early June on a Bee Balm leaf. As I zoomed in closer I noticed that he started rocking his head. It was curiously menacing considering that he was about a half-inch long.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
