Idolomantis diabolica

One of the largest species of praying mantis, this well-dressed assassin is a natural master of disguise, cunningly masquerading as foliage or flowers as it waits in ambush for any unlucky passersby. With colors ranging from rich greens and yellows to autumnal browns and reds, its uniquely lethal beauty has earned it the name of the Devil’s Flower Mantis. A perfectly good excuse not to stop and smell the roses, especially if you’re a bug.
