Mantis Fursonas?

I'm thinking about making my next fursona be some kind of mantis. I don't know much about mantis{es?}{i?} but I hope to learn! Has anyone seen mantis fursonas around the fandom? I certainly haven't and I'd love to change that!

So mantes/mantises {I looked it up} aren't super popular as fursonas... That's so weird since they're so cute!

The only place I've seen where insectoid characters in general are somewhat popular is on Furcadia.

I have researched mantis species. Orchid mantises are perfect. My next fursona will be an orchid mantis. Now for a name! Does anyone want to give me ideas? I'm terrible at naming things XD

Edit: I'm thinking this one will be a "bad girl" and she'll wear punk clothes and have... Well... Mantises don't have anything to pierce so nevermind about that idea... But anyway! She might look like this:

But I'm still looking for mantis types. Turns out, my research wasn't nearly as extensive as I thought.

Now I'm thinking about making my new sona a mantis/dragon hybrid! I have no idea what that would look like, though, so this girl is gonna be a bit of work to create even in my imagination!
