This may be a dumb question, but here goes:
I've seen references to these mantis-like aliens in numerous abductee accounts. The frustrating thing, though, is that those accounts always seem to
stop short of telling us just how mantis-like the beings are.
What I mean to say is, are we dealing with something that still has your basic humanoid body type, with two legs and two arms, but with a bug-like
head and huge eyes?
Or when people liken these things to mantises, are they saying these creatures also have the types of upper appendages which give the praying mantis
its name? If so, are we talking about a bipedal creature with mantis-like arms, or would it be the full on mantis body style, complete with four legs
for standing and walking, and then the two front "legs" being the "praying" upper appendages?
I know it may seem silly for me to be requesting such specific information about beings with remain unknown, and whose very existence is not generally
accepted as fact, but what can I say? None of the literature I've seen has addressed this question, and I guess it's been in the back of my mind
bugging me ever since I first read about these weird mantis men.
