    It’s time for some fun! Look what we found recently — a beautiful praying mantis! We believe it’s a native Carolina mantis.

    Here are some #funfacts about mantises. They:

    * have two eyes and great vision.

    * are carnivores and eat other insects live.

    * can turn their heads side to side and a full 180 degrees.

    * are related to cockroaches and termites.

    Most mantises in the U.S. are an exotic non-native invasive species, such as the Chinese mantis and the European mantis.
