Alien Insect - The Praying Mantis
Das Alieninsekt - Die Gottesanbeterin
Worldwide there are 2.000 species of praying mantis. This film explores the world of these «real aliens». In unprecedented images it shows how mantises live, reproduce and die. But biological processes are not the film's only focus. It features the largest and rarest representatives of the mantis family, several of which have never been filmed before.
