Praying Mantis | Metal Earth Bugs

The Metal Earth Praying Mantis models are amazingly detailed etched models that are fun and satisfying to assemble. Each model is made from a pair of completely flat laser-etched steel sheets. The name comes from the Greek word meaning prophet because they appear to be praying when their forelegs are clasped together. They are carnivorous and are equipped with sharp spines along their front legs to grasp prey. The mantis is a very unique insect in that it can turn its head 180 degrees, has only one ear and some are large enough to capture humming birds.
