Incomplete metamorphosis.

I took this picture of the mantis on my hand, in the morning, me not to know why to call you to this, exactly: "religious mantis then investigated in google: "religious mantis and I found that:

The religious mantis is an animal of the group of the insects, it is called this way, for the position that adopts while this wait to its prey (as the humans when they are praying).
(oh, oh, I thought that this was begging me: ' Ninfa please, not more fotos')

The insects predators have sharp and pointed jaws to cross, to retain and to crumble their combative preys. Those that chew plants have blunt jaws to crush or to mill their food. The jaws of the mantis can cut a fly, the thorny front paws use them to sustain their prey.

Something that to capture my attention the form in that her to jump quickly and sorpresivamente for me, I found information on the jumps of the mantis:

That small animal jumps of branch in branch, always wanting to arrive to the highest to be able to dominate the panorama and to find his dinner of the day. In each jump, the mantis should calculate the distance among the branches, for what is usual to see it balancing of a side to other, as if it was cooing something with the purpose of that the object on which wants to jump the it perceives with the two eyes; their brain will only this way be able to integrate the information and to generate a three-dimensional representation of its space...........
