Introduction to Mantids.

Mantids make great pets. All mantids are rapacious. They are easy and fun to take care after, and requires minimal care. Each has its own colors to bled in with its environment. They got an ear in between their front legs, which they use to listen for bats. Mantids can hear only high-pitch sounds.
