With glowing eyes and fluorescent bodies, these giant insects can look pretty scary! But the Praying Mantas are actually serene mutes, who love nothing more than interacting and boogying with the audience.

Watch in wonder as our long-legged friends glide on stilts through the audience, captivating children and creating high impact in their surroundings.

Ideal for animal, horticultural or even Halloween events, or just if you need some giant bugs, the Praying Mantas always create a buzz!

‘The Praying Mantas proved to be a huge hit…Artemis were a pleasure to work with and they helped make the event a huge success’

— Brian Scott, Events Officer, Glasgow Show

Just wanted to say thanks for providing the praying mantas for our Halloween event in Peel Park. They were all really nice to work with, looked amazing, and had obviously studied carefully praying mantis habits! They went down really well with our audience and people are saying it was our best Halloween event yet.
