The Praying Mantis

The Praying Mantis in ANTS vs PRAYING MANTIS

The Praying Mantis made her only appearance in ANTS vs PRAYING MANTIS, where she was placed into the Hacienda Del Dorado as a way to control the population of the Golden Empire. She proved herself to be more than capable of taking care of herself, being able to grab a member of the Golden Empire to eat, as well as a baby cockroach.

November 2017Edit

In OMG! MY ANTS ARE LEARNING!, Mikey mentioned that the last time he saw the Praying Mantis was a few weeks previously. Mikey has three theories as to what happened to her.

  • The Praying Mantis may have been captured and eaten by the Golden Empire. However, there had been no sign of her exoskeleton in the garbage sites.
  • The Praying Mantis may still in the Hacienda Del Dorado, unharmed.
  • The Praying Mantis may have escaped while Mikey's housekeeper was tending to the Golden Empire and the lid was off.

Mikey said that he will let the AC Family know when/if he finds the Praying Mantis.

January 2018Edit

The Praying Mantis was found in COMING BACK HOME TO ANT DISASTER! PLEASE HELP!, where she had been retrieved from the Hacienda Del Dorado. Mikey started a poll for the AC Family to vote whether to keep her and release her.

February 2018Edit

The Praying Mantis appeared in a flashback in THE CRAZIEST ANT FARM I'VE EVER MADE!, as Mikey explained that she was used as form of population control, but wasn't enough.
