What is the only insect that can turn its head 180 degrees?

Answer:

PRAYING MANTIS

Try to sneak up on a praying mantis, and you may be startled when it looks over its shoulder at you. The praying mantis is the only insect that can turn its head 180 degrees and scan its surroundings. No other insect can do so. They have a flexible joint between their head and prothorax that enables them to swivel their heads. The praying mantis is named for its prominent front legs, which are bent and held together at an angle that suggests the position of prayer. The adult female praying mantis is known to eat her mate just after or during mating.
