STRANGE INSECTS - PRAYING MANTIS USING MOSS AS CAMOUFLAGE - BORNEO

Believe it or not, you are staring into the eyes of a tropical praying mantis that imitates moss to avoid detection. This odd-looking creature comes adorned with so many stealth adaptations that you will have to look several times before you have a chance of recognizing its outline. The photo was taken by Igor Siwanowicz in Borneo. These mantids manipulate coloration, structural adaptations and behavioral modeling to deceive itís victims of the approaching danger. The insects are commonly called "praying mantises", because of the typical "prayer-like" stance with hands folded together. There are more than 2,000 species of mantis in 15 different families in the world.
