With their namesake stance, the Praying Mantis is easy to recognize, but don't let their pious posture fool you. The praying mantis is a fierce predator in the bug world, sometimes earning the eggcorn "preying mantis". However, these holy-looking insects have earned their place in mythology - some Southern African indigenous mythology refers to the mantis as a god and "Mantis" is the Greek word for "prophet or seer".
Now you can have your very own 3-inch-tall Praying Mantis with the Praying Mantis 3D Metal Model kit. This amazingly detailed DIY model starts as a 4" laser-cut square steel sheet, and finishes as a beautiful 3D model. Use the easy to follow instructions to pop out the pieces, bend the tabs, and connect them at the attachment points.
