Interesting facts about mantids :-
1) Mantids can turn their heads a full 180 degrees.
2) Mantids Are Closely Related to Cockroaches and Termites.
3) Mantids have two eyes, but only one ear. The single ear is located on the underside of its belly, just forward of its hind legs.
4) A praying mantis will molt 5-10 times in its lifetime. The whole process should take about 20 minutes, unless it’s the last/adult molt in which case takes it will take a little longer to inflate wings.

These guys are small: 12mm for black vine weevil and 6mm for garden weevil. These are probably clay coloured or elephant weevils.

A weevil can be characterized as a beetle with a long 'nose', and a pair of elbowed antennae placed on it. Weevils are among the toughest of beetles, many having incredibly hard, spiky bodies. (Backyard Insects Paul Horne & Denis Crawford)
