Researchers have discovered a new type of praying mantis previously unknown to science in Rwandas remote Nyungwe national park. Dystacta tigrifrutex — also known as the tiger bush mantis — earned its name from the hunting practises of the female members of the species. Scientists found the new species when a male bush tiger mantis was attracted to a light trap placed during a three-week expedition to the national park. Dr. Gavin Svenson, one of the lead authors of the study that unveiled the bush tiger mantis to the world, says the species likely only lives in the mountainous Nyungwe national park.
