Devil’s horse

The Devil’s horse is inn Ozark folklore, the colloquial name for the praying mantis. It is considered bad luck to disturb a praying mantis, because it might spit tobacco juice into one’s eye and cause blindness. In some rural parts, the Devil’s horse is thought, falsely, to be poisonous.
