Yep they are all reptiles, but there is something that makes them different from most other reptiles. They are not exclusive in this regard but these mentioned are just a few of them.... :wink:

They are importent to us because of this thing they have in common.

They are all listed with Cites as appendix II species.

(Appendix II includes those species that, although not necessarily threatened with extinction, may become so unless regulated)

Nice try Jonty

1) Identify - Flower Mantid (Harpagomantis tricolor)
Image

2) Resembels which other mantid- oops (Eyed -flower mantid)
Image(Pseudocreobotra wahlbergi)

The flower mantid resembles the Eyed flower mantid except for the absence of the forewing eyespot.

3) Describe head
A double spine projects forwards from the middle of the
head. Eyes pink with white spots, and produced into
forwardpointing spines, giving the head a W-shape when
viewed from above.
