What should I feed a praying mantis? Answered

I remember hearing that a mantis can be trained to recognize a person's face/voice. And having come across a tiny praying mantis today, I thought," What on earth would I feed that thing?"  Perhaps other small insects? I really have no idea.

Umm... No. I normally don't ask praying mantis related questions... I fairly sure this is the first one even about food.

That one was about food. They were rather close together - coincidence I think.

 Crickets or fruit flies are good.  Pet shops sell these, or you can order them online, or even catch and/or breed your own.
