The Giant Praying Mantises (大カマキリ,   Ōkamakiri?, lit. Large Mantis) were a species of giant mantis kaiju that first appeared in the 1967 Godzilla film, Son of Godzilla.


History

Son of Godzilla

The Giant mantises roamed the forests peacefully until the Japanese government decided to set up a base for testing weather control. The testing resulted in a radioactive fallout on the island, turning the mantises into gigantic ones dubbed Kamacuras.
