THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE I HER ATTITUDE OF PRAYER CONCEALS A SAVAGE NATURE The praying mantis, a lone meat-eater in a large family of vegetarian insects, assumes an attitude which suggests to human eyes a devout nature, and lies in wait for her victims. So savage is this insect Amazon that after the mating season she calmly devours her husband. THE JUNGLE TURKEY PROVED A WELCOME ADDITION TO THE EXPEDITION'S LARDER The feathers of this magnificent bird are bluish black and white and the beak is a dark orange color. A pronounced crest can be raised on the head at will. The meat is white and tender and highly esteemed by the Indians.
