    Just what I was looking for.

    This mantis was placed on a tree on the new land that my sister bought. He was named Marty the Mantis and he is overseeing the construction of the barn and house.

    very good unit

    I like the looks very much but its made of steel. I don’t think it will last very long out in the weather. It is paintedgood but if the paint comes off it will rust.

    Cute and Creepy

    I have this hanging on my front door post. It took a bit getting use to it. I would jump thinking a giant praying mantis had landed. Causes a stir when people come to visit.

    Too big and pricy

    A bit hokey I think but it works for where it is, in my flower garden. I was hoping to put it on our patio post but it is too big to look realistic so into the garden it went. Price too expensive.

    Poorly painted. Large drips of paint running down the legs. I will have to fix that. Not what I expected. Packed in to small a box. Legs and antennas pocking through the box.

    Looks great!

    Looks as good as I hoped. I need less-obvious screws, but wanted to get it up right away. It was worried the paint job would be bad, but other than derpy eyes (which are kind of cute, anyway) it looks great! Nice conversation piece!

    Absolutely Beautiful

    I cannot express how happy I am with this thing, I absolutely love it, I will put it out on my front trees for the neighbors to point at and enjoy as they walk their kids and doggies. I have several decorations out there and I am very picky as to what is good enough for this area, this is one of the best decorations of this type that I have ever purchased. A BIG thank you to the seller for making this available. I wrote this review with genuine honesty and because I like it so much that the seller deserves major credit, oh yes, it arrived fast and safe. Thanks again to the seller.

    Just love this Praying Mantis

    I couldn’t pass up this really nice size Praying Mantis. We usually have 3-4 Praying Mantis every summer that lay their ootheca on our property. It’s so much fun watching them hatch the next spring. If you like Praying Mantis’ I would highly recommend this little lady. We put her on our front porch and she does put a smile on our face. 🙂

    Large Mantis is colorful & artistic…

    This is a very colorful and artfully done metal praying mantis bug. It is a large sized praying mantis and was hung quickly on a wooden patio pole. The feelers on the forehead of the mantis are a bit fragile & loosely attached to the forehead. FYI: the larger head screws to hang the mantis was not inside the package and I see nothing advertised that the screws are supplied by the manufacturer. I’m very pleased with my purchase none the less.

    It’s not life-sized, it’s larger but that’s okay for me.

    I ordered this is a joke for someone who is extremely afraid of Praying Mantises, LOL Even though it’s almost 6″ long, it still startled my friend when she saw it just sitting there on the kitchen countertop. I love that there’s a hole in one of the legs to be able to nail it to a solid surface so I’ll just nail it to the outside of my gazebo. I love this!

    Adorable Mantis

    I bought this as a visual surprise on our walking trail through the woods (our own property – please do not deface public lands). It has holes for easy hanging and looks adorable as a trail marker. It makes me smile every time I see it.

    Delightful! Praying Mantis garden sculpture

    This metal praying mantis is quite delightful and beautifully made… considerably larger than the real thing! I haven’t yet decided where to display it, since we feed hummingbirds here, and I recently found out that praying mantises have been praying on hummingbirds…!!! I don’t want to freak them out. So right now the mantis is indoors…

    Makes me smile

    I absolutely love my little praying mantis. I mounted it on a log in the garden and it makes me smile every time I see him. I use to have praying mantis in my garden and have not seen any for years – he is a welcomed addition to my yard.

    nice piece

    This is a really nice piece for our fence. I had to send two back for a leg was off and another for the hanging ring was missing. Finally got a really nice one and it look like it was newer or better shape than the others. Nice item.

    OMG – hard to buy for husband absolutely loved it. I got it for his birthday thinking outside on a tree or fence post… he wants to keep it inside… in my living room… on a display bookshelf !!!The praying mantis is about 8 inches long. It’s cute – especially for a painted metal bug. Great pain job. Perfect gift for anyone with trees or a yard… or a display bookshelf in the living room.

    What a Bug

    This bug was a gift for my friend who loves all bugs! She loved it and so did I it is a nice size- about a foot long. It will look great in a garden, attached to a tree or a post of any kind. I gave it a 4 for sturdiness because it is very lightweight and the legs will bend easy. I would buy it again!

    I LOVE Praying Mantis and this Praying Mantis Tree Hanger is so much fun! I bought it with the intentions of attaching it to an exterior fence in my garden, but I honestly don’t want to risk it’s deterioration as I am enjoying it so much inside my home. I would definitely purchase this again!
