The reason for sexual cannibalism has been debated; experiments show that females on poor diets are likelier to engage in sexual cannibalism than those on good diets.

This is contrasted by a study where males were seen to approach hungry females with more caution, and were shown to remain mounted on hungry females for a longer time, indicating that males that actively avoid cannibalism may mate with multiple females.

The same study also found that hungry females generally attracted fewer males than those that were well fed.

An increase in mounting duration appears to indicate that males wait for an opportune time to dismount a hungry female, who would be likely to cannibalize her mate.

One of the earliest mantis references is in the ancient Chinese dictionary Erya , which gives its attributes in poetry, where it represents courage and fearlessness, and a brief description.

A later text, the Jingshi Zhenglei Daguan Bencao "Great History of Medical Material Annotated and Arranged by Types, Based upon the Classics and Historical Works" from , gives accurate details of the construction of the egg packages, the development cycle, anatomy, and the function of the antennae.

Although mantises are rarely mentioned in Ancient Greek sources, a female mantis in threat posture is accurately illustrated on a series of fifth-century BC silver coins, including didrachms , from Metapontum in Lucania.

Western descriptions of the biology and morphology of the mantises became more accurate in the 18th century. Roesel von Rosenhof illustrated and described mantises and their cannibalistic behavior in the Insekten-Belustigungen Insect Entertainments.

Aldous Huxley made philosophical observations about the nature of death while two mantises mated in the sight of two characters in his novel Island the species was Gongylus gongylodes.

The naturalist Gerald Durrell 's humorously autobiographical book My Family and Other Animals includes a four-page account of an almost evenly matched battle between a mantis and a gecko.

Cicely [the mantis] retaliated by snapping both her front legs shut on Geronimo's hindlegs. They rustled and staggered across the ceiling and down the wall, each seeking to gain some advantage.

Escher 's woodcut Dream depicts a human-sized mantis standing on a sleeping bishop. In the film Son of Godzilla and other related films, the kaiju called " Kamacuras " are giant mantis monsters.

A cultural trope imagines the female mantis as a femme fatale. McCracken, and Mark Parisi, among others. Two martial arts separately developed in China have movements and fighting strategies based on those of the mantis.

The mantis was revered by the southern African Khoi and San in whose cultures man and nature were intertwined; for its praying posture, the mantis was even named Hottentotsgot "god of the Khoi" in the Afrikaans language that had developed among the first European settlers.

Mantises are among the insects most widely kept as pets. In at least 31 species were kept and bred in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and the United States.

Gardeners who prefer to avoid pesticides may encourage mantises in the hope of controlling insect pests. Two species, the Chinese mantis and the European mantis, were deliberately introduced to North America in the hope that they would serve as pest controls for agriculture; they have spread widely in both the United States and Canada.

A prototype robot inspired by the forelegs of the praying mantis has front legs that allow the robot to walk , climb steps, and grasp objects. The multi-jointed leg provides dexterity via a rotatable joint.

Future models may include a more spiked foreleg to improve the grip and ability to support more weight. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Bulletin of the Amateur Entomologists' Society , 46 : December Die Backenzähne bilden sich im hinteren Teil des Kiefers und nutzen sich ab, während sie nach vorne wandern, was vermutlich eine Anpassung an die mit Sand vermischte Pflanzennahrung darstellt.

Ein ähnlicher Zahnwechsel findet sich beispielsweise bei den Rüsseltieren , nicht jedoch bei den Gabelschwanzseekühen.

Dies bewirkt, dass die Tiere schwerer sind und leichter untertauchen beziehungsweise im Wasser schweben können.

Die grau oder braun gefärbte Haut ist bis zu 5 Zentimeter dick. Ähnlich wie andere Meeressäugetiere erscheinen Manatis unbehaart, obwohl ihr Körper mit kurzen, bürstenartigen Haaren versehen ist.

Rundschwanzseekühe sind in ihren Abmessungen in etwa mit den Dugongs vergleichbar. Rundschwanzseekühe sind auf die Küsten des Atlantiks und die darin mündenden Flusssysteme beschränkt.

Im Meer halten sie sich meist in seichten Küstenabschnitten, darunter auch Lagunen und Mangrovengebieten auf.

Sie sind aber auch in Brackwässern und Flüssen zu finden. Wie alle Seekühe sind Rundschwanzseekühe an eine aquatische Lebensweise angepasst und können im Gegensatz zu den Robben , die gewisse Ähnlichkeiten im Körperbau aufweisen, aber nicht näher verwandt sind, nicht mehr an Land kommen.

Die Fortbewegung im Wasser geschieht hauptsächlich durch die Fluke , die Vorderflossen dienen dem Manövrieren, dem Kontakt zu Artgenossen und der Nahrungsaufnahme.

Um zu atmen, strecken sie nur die an der Oberseite der Schnauze liegenden Nasenlöcher aus dem Wasser, sie sind nicht imstande, mit dem Mund zu atmen.

Die Dauer eines Tauchgangs ist variabel, sie beträgt durchschnittlich rund 4 Minuten, allerdings können die Tiere bis zu 16 Minuten unter Wasser bleiben.

Manatis können sowohl tag- als auch nachtaktiv sein. Einer sechs- bis achtstündigen Fressphase folgt eine sechs- bis zehnstündige Ruhephase, bei der sie sich entweder unter der Wasseroberfläche treibend oder am Grund liegend aufhalten.

Über das Sozialverhalten gibt es unterschiedliche Berichte, sie leben entweder einzelgängerisch oder in kleinen Familiengruppen. Manchmal bilden mehrere Tiere lose Zusammenschlüsse, etwa bei der Nahrungsaufnahme.

Zwar sind diese Zusammenschlüsse durch vielfältige, nicht geschlechtsspezifische Körperkontakte wie gegenseitiges Umarmen oder zärtliches Knabbern geprägt, dennoch entwickeln sich keine Rangordnung und keine gegenseitigen Hilfestellungen.

Wie alle Seekühe sind Rundschwanzseekühe Pflanzenfresser, die sich von verschiedenen im oder über dem Wasser wachsenden Pflanzen wie Seegräser , Wassersalat oder Grundnesseln ernähren.

These injuries not only cause gruesome wounds, but may also impact population processes by reducing calf production and survival in wounded females — observations also speak to the likely pain and suffering endured.

Minimization of this injury is explicit in the Recovery Plan, several state statutes, and federal laws, and implicit in our society's ethical and moral standards.

In , of the Florida manatees recorded dead, 97 were killed by commercial and recreational vessels, which broke the earlier record number of 95 set in Another cause of manatee deaths are red tides , a term used for the proliferation, or "blooms", of the microscopic marine algae, Karenia brevis.

This dinoflagellate produces brevetoxins that can have toxic effects on the central nervous system of animals.

In , a red tide was responsible for manatee deaths. Manatees can also be crushed and isolated in water control structures navigation locks, floodgates , etc.

While humans are allowed to swim with manatees in one area of Florida, [51] there have been numerous charges of people harassing and disturbing the manatees.

All three species of manatee are listed by the World Conservation Union as vulnerable to extinction. However, The U. Fish and Wildlife Service FWS does not consider the West Indian manatee to be "endangered" anymore, having downgraded its status to "threatened" as of March They cite improvements to habitat conditions, population growth and reductions of threats as reasoning for the change.

The reclassification was met with controversy, with Floridan senator Vern Buchanan and groups such as the Save the Manatee Club and the Center for Biological Diversity expressing concerns that the change would have a detrimental effect on conservation efforts.

Manatee population in the United States reached a low in the 's, during which only a few hundred individuals lived in the nation.

Brazil outlawed hunting in in an effort to preserve the species. Deaths by boat strikes are still common. Born at the Miami Aquarium and Tackle Company on July 21, , Snooty was one of the first recorded captive manatee births.

Raised entirely in captivity, Snooty was never to be released into the wild. As such he was the only manatee at the aquarium, and one of only a few captive manatees in the United States that was allowed to interact with human handlers.

That made him uniquely suitable for manatee research and education. Snooty died suddenly two days after his 69th birthday, July 23, , when he was found in an underwater area only used to access plumbing for the exhibit life support system.

There are a number of manatee rehabilitation centers in the United States. After initial treatment at these facilities, the manatees are transferred to rehabilitation facilities before release.

Since , the zoo's Manatee Bay facility has helped rehabilitate 20 manatees. The River Safari at Singapore features seven of them.

Since the 19th century, Georgetown, Guyana has kept West Indian manatees in its botanical garden , and later, its national park. The manatee has been linked to folklore on mermaids.

Killing one was taboo and required penance.

The abdomen tends to be slimmer in males than females, but ends in a pair of cerci in both sexes. Mantises have stereo vision. A small area at the front called the fovea has greater visual acuity than the rest of the eye, and can produce the high resolution necessary to examine potential prey.

The peripheral ommatidia are concerned with perceiving motion; when a moving object is noticed, the head is rapidly rotated to bring the object into the visual field of the fovea.

Further motions of the prey are then tracked by movements of the mantis's head so as to keep the image centered on the fovea.

This occurs because the ommatidia that are viewed "head-on" absorb the incident light , while those to the side reflect it. As their hunting relies heavily on vision, mantises are primarily diurnal.

Many species, however, fly at night, and then may be attracted to artificial lights. Mantises in the family Liturgusidae collected at night have been shown to be predominately males; [31] this is probably true for most mantises.

Nocturnal flight is especially important to males in locating less-mobile females by detecting their pheromones. Flying at night exposes mantises to fewer bird predators than diurnal flight would.

Many mantises also have an auditory thoracic organ that helps them avoid bats by detecting their echolocation calls and responding evasively.

Mantises are generalist predators of arthropods. They either camouflage themselves and remain stationary, waiting for prey to approach, or stalk their prey with slow, stealthy movements.

Larger mantises sometimes eat smaller individuals of their own species, [35] as well as small vertebrates such as lizards, frogs, fish, and particularly small birds.

Most mantises stalk tempting prey if it strays close enough, and will go further when they are especially hungry. For example, members of a few genera such as the ground mantises, Entella , Ligaria , and Ligariella run over dry ground seeking prey, much as tiger beetles do.

The fore gut of some species extends the whole length of the insect and can be used to store prey for digestion later. This may be advantageous in an insect that feeds intermittently.

Mantises are preyed on by vertebrates such as frogs, lizards, and birds, and by invertebrates such as spiders, large species of hornets , and ants.

When directly threatened, many mantis species stand tall and spread their forelegs, with their wings fanning out wide.

The fanning of the wings makes the mantis seem larger and more threatening, with some species enhancing this effect with bright colors and patterns on their hindwings and inner surfaces of their front legs.

If harassment persists, a mantis may strike with its forelegs and attempt to pinch or bite. As part of the bluffing deimatic threat display , some species may also produce a hissing sound by expelling air from the abdominal spiracles.

Mantises lack chemical protection, so their displays are largely bluff. When flying at night, at least some mantises are able to detect the echolocation sounds produced by bats; when the frequency begins to increase rapidly, indicating an approaching bat, they stop flying horizontally and begin a descending spiral toward the safety of the ground, often preceded by an aerial loop or spin.

If caught, they may slash captors with their raptorial legs. Mantises, like stick insects , show rocking behavior in which the insect makes rhythmic, repetitive side-to-side movements.

Functions proposed for this behavior include the enhancement of crypsis by means of the resemblance to vegetation moving in the wind.

However, the repetitive swaying movements may be most important in allowing the insects to discriminate objects from the background by their relative movement, a visual mechanism typical of animals with simpler sight systems.

Rocking movements by these generally sedentary insects may replace flying or running as a source of relative motion of objects in the visual field.

Exploiting this behavior, a variety of arthropods, including some early-instar mantises, mimic ants to evade their predators.

Leaf mimicry : Choeradodis has leaf-like forewings and a widened green thorax. Adult female Iris oratoria performs a bluffing threat display , rearing back with the forelegs and wings spread and mouth opened.

The jeweled flower mantis, Creobroter gemmatus : the brightly colored wings are opened suddenly in a deimatic display to startle predators.

Some mantis nymphs mimic ants to avoid predators. The mating season in temperate climates typically takes place in autumn, [55] [56] while in tropical areas, mating can occur at any time of the year.

He then arches his abdomen to deposit and store sperm in a special chamber near the tip of the female's abdomen. The female lays between 10 and eggs, depending on the species.

Eggs are typically deposited in a froth mass-produced by glands in the abdomen. This froth hardens, creating a protective capsule, which together with the egg mass is called an ootheca.

Depending on the species, the ootheca can be attached to a flat surface, wrapped around a plant, or even deposited in the ground.

In a few species, mostly ground and bark mantises in the family Tarachodidae , the mother guards the eggs. As in closely related insect groups in the superorder Dictyoptera, mantises go through three life stages: egg, nymph, and adult mantises are among the hemimetabolous insects.

For smaller species, the eggs may hatch in 3—4 weeks as opposed to 4—6 weeks for larger species. The nymphs may be colored differently from the adult, and the early stages are often mimics of ants.

A mantis nymph grows bigger as it molts its exoskeleton. Molting can happen five to 10 times before the adult stage is reached, depending on the species.

After the final molt, most species have wings, though some species remain wingless or brachypterous "short-winged" , particularly in the female sex.

The lifespan of a mantis depends on the species; smaller ones may live 4—8 weeks, while larger species may live 4—6 months.

Sexual cannibalism is common among most predatory species of mantises in captivity. It has sometimes been observed in natural populations, where about a quarter of male-female encounters result in the male being eaten by the female.

The female may begin feeding by biting off the male's head as they do with regular prey , and if mating has begun, the male's movements may become even more vigorous in its delivery of sperm.

Early researchers thought that because copulatory movement is controlled by a ganglion in the abdomen, not the head, removal of the male's head was a reproductive strategy by females to enhance fertilization while obtaining sustenance.

Later, this behavior appeared to be an artifact of intrusive laboratory observation. Whether the behavior is natural in the field or also the result of distractions caused by the human observer remains controversial.

Mantises are highly visual organisms and notice any disturbance in the laboratory or field, such as bright lights or moving scientists.

Chinese mantises that had been fed ad libitum so that they were not hungry actually displayed elaborate courtship behavior when left undisturbed.

The male engages the female in a courtship dance, to change her interest from feeding to mating. The reason for sexual cannibalism has been debated; experiments show that females on poor diets are likelier to engage in sexual cannibalism than those on good diets.

This is contrasted by a study where males were seen to approach hungry females with more caution, and were shown to remain mounted on hungry females for a longer time, indicating that males that actively avoid cannibalism may mate with multiple females.

The same study also found that hungry females generally attracted fewer males than those that were well fed.

An increase in mounting duration appears to indicate that males wait for an opportune time to dismount a hungry female, who would be likely to cannibalize her mate.
