With glowing eyes and fluorescent bodies, these giant insects can look scary! But the Praying Mantas are 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 environmental, horticultural and Halloween events, garden parties or just if you need some giant bugs, the Praying Mantas always create a stir!

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.

Artemis will always be my standout favourites. The Praying Mantisis/Manti are really popular with the kids. I think they are the most popular of all the acts we’ve had.
