|This article is about a/an monster in Power Rangers in Space, the last installment in the Zordon Era.|
Praying Mantis was a robotic mantis monster used by Astronema. Praying Mantis was sent by Astronema to take advantage of Zhane's morphing time limit. Astronema attached a digital 2:30 timer strip on Praying Mantis's shoulder and if he could detain Zhane for two and a half minutes, the device would do the rest. When the monster put down his sytche in the ground, it made a fog to hide himself. His shoulder blades could detach and trap Zhane. He was finally destroyed by the Mega Voyager.
