How many eyes does the praying mantis have?
Praying mantis has five eyes. There are two large compound eyes on the head which moves freely around (up to 180°) and three simple eyes between the compound eyes. The compound eyes are capable of seeing images and colors. The three simple eyes perhaps tell the differences between light and dark. The simple eyes are arranged in a triangle between the antennae. Compound eyes are made up of hundreds of facets constructed with two lenses.
