4D Human Exploded Skull

4D Human Exploded Skull
Learn the anatomy and bone structure of the human skull with this highly detailed anatomy model. It's a hyper-realistic anatomical puzzle featuring an exploded skull with a scale of 1:2.

The praying mantis is one of the most peculiar looking insects in nature. Its delicate forearms help it to blend in with its plant environment. Your model, made using the Metal Earth Praying Mantis kit, is made out of metal, so it won't camouflage as well - but be careful: you might give someone a fright because it's so close to the real thing!

In the kit you'll receive one laser-cut sheet of metal containing the pieces needed to construct a scale model of a real praying mantis.

The name 'praying mantis' comes from the Greek word meaning prophet because they appear to be praying when their forelegs are clasped together. These insects are carnivorous and are equipped with sharp spines along their front legs to grasp prey. The mantis is a very unique insect in that it can turn its head 180 degrees, has only one ear and some are large enough to capture humming birds.
