An alien form early reported is the Praying Mantis - large, dark, and, to humans, insect like. They have no physiological similarity to the insects of Earth, however, and in fact are a form of hominoid - mammalian. The Praying Mantis are one of hundreds of alien groups involved in the Earth's Transformation, but they are few in number. They possess remarkable telepathic abilities, surpassing that of ourselves, the Zetas. The Praying Mantis visiting Earth at this time are all in the Service-to-Other orientation.
