The Spore Mantis is a giant parasitic insect kaiju that appears in the 2017 Legendary Pictures film Kong: Skull Island.

Design

Both the body and limbs of the Spore Mantis resemble fallen trees. In fact, bark is a part of the species' epidermis. Beneath this deceptive layer lies a parasitic slug with powerful jaws able to crush bone.[1]

History

MonsterVerse

Kong: Skull Island

While attempting to contact the other members of his team, Jack Chapman sat down on a fallen log, which suddenly began to move. Chapman fell off the log, which revealed itself as a Spore Mantis. Chapman scrambled to recover his machine gun and fired it at the creature, damaging its wood-like armour. After calling out several times, the Spore Mantis turned and walked away. Confused, Chapman turned around, only to be confronted by a Skullcrawler, which promptly killed and ate him.

Abilities
