Normally when we see a Matis religiosa, also known as Santateresa, not give us any objection catch it. It is slightly larger than a grasshopper and it can do anything to us. But perhaps we would not be so confident if we saw one mantis 20 cm, a giant mantis religiosa able to hunt birds, rodents and even small lizards. They are even capable of devouring people.
The giant mantis is called stick mantis giant Malaysia (Paratoxodera cornicollis) is probably the largest mantis that exists, and is called "stick" to resemble sticks-bugs that blend with their surroundings and appear chunks vegetation. And this ability is that used for hunting, stand still, hidden, hidden among the branches until a prey comes close enough to be able to catch him in his strong front legs.
