Q: What garden insect prays and preys on its own mate?
A: A Praying WoMantis

The praying mantis is named for its prominent front legs, which are bent and held together at an angle that suggests the position of prayer. The European mantis (Mantis religiosa) was made the state insect of Connecticut in 1977.
