They have eyes that can move independently and look in two directions at once, as well as swivel nearly 180 degrees.
They are therefore able to look in any direction, and even follow moving objects, without turning their heads or shifting body position. When a prey animal is spotted, both eyes will focus on the insect in order to perceive depth. To catch food they have a large tongue with a muscle on the end to grab food, this tongue is twice as long as its body when stretched out!
