Hear the Praying Mantis

Praying Mantis

The praying mantis is an invertebrate found throughout the United States and other parts of the world.  They range from green to tan and have large, grasping forearms used to catch their prey.  They have the unusual ability to disturb electronic frequencies and devices.  This is because they emit radio waves caused by kinetic energy generated inside their thorax.  The exact cause is unknown.
