THE SPINY FLOWER MANTIS
Native to southern and eastern Africa
While at rest Pseudocreobotra wahlbergii is well camouflaged. In fact, its imitation of a flower is so good that prey insects will attempt to pollinate it. Instead, the mantis seizes and eats them. P. wahlbergii is very aggressive and has the ability to kill prey several times larger than itself
The top photo shows the spiny flower mantis in a threat display, spreading its forewings,making itself appear larger, and prominently displaying its eyespots to startle would-be predators.
