- City councilor Keith Powers described it as & # 39; gigantic & # 39; and & # 39; frightening & # 39;
- He broke the bug that lifted on Uptown-bound 6-train on Tuesday

A praying mantis ensured that there were no flies on commuters, as it jumped aboard a New York Subway train on Tuesday and caused quite a stir.
Councilor Keith Powers traveled Uptown on the 6 train when another driver told him that his head was dangerously close to the leggy insect.
He took a picture of the praying mantis while it clung to the metal inner frame of the subway car and stared at passengers.
Trapped in his synonymous & praying pose, the beetle seemed unaffected by worried people around him, all of whom were watching his considerable green and brown trunk and black eyes.
Powers wrote the message on social media: & # 39; Like most New Yorkers, I'm scared of the giant praying mantis in the subway, but also relieved that he didn't scream: & # 39; It's showtime! & # 39;

The last part referred to metro artists who often used the expression & # 39; Showtime & # 39; shout before performing a dance-based or aerial display in train wagons.
Powers posted the image online and received more than 1,400 likes since Tuesday. Later, he added a photo to the movie & # 39; The Deadly Mantis & # 39; from 1957
The tweet was liked 1400 times and retweeted more than 220 times on Wednesday evening.
Equally amused and shocked by the bug, social media users have left comments, including & # 39; OMG & # 39 ;, & # 39; Scary & # 39; and & # 39; Holy crackers & # 39 ;.
Bird Lawyer account joked: & # 39; careful. The last man who said that to her got his head off.
& # 39; I have seen cockroaches. Rats. But that is creepy #citykid, & # 39; Roger Clark replied. & # 39; I like everything mosquitoes eat! & # 39;
& # 39; OH! Commuting and Safari in one! & # 39; Naama Yehuda added.
City councilor Corey Johnson has credited the New York City Transit Boss with the new passenger.
& # 39; Andy Byford continues to improve the metro and improve the game & # 39 ;, he wrote.
Powers later posted a recording of the movie posted for the 1957 disaster-thriller hit & # 39; The Deadly Mantis & # 39 ;.
The film aptly sees the giant insect being followed from the North Pole to Manhattan by an American colonel and a paleontologist.

A Twitter account for a Bedbug Hunting Dog (above) noted that a praying mantis may not be the worst find in a New York subway
An account for & # 39; RoscoeTheBedBugDog & # 39; claimed that it is better to find a praying mantis than bed bugs that lift a lift.
Views of New York wrote: & # 39; Wow! The only other giant praying mantis I've seen in the subway was @NYCMayor when his SUV brought him to his morning training. & # 39;
Another user joked that it was a & # 39; Teenage Mutant Ninja Mantis & # 39; had to be.
Even the official Twitter account of the MTA Subway responded and shared a GIF of movie character & # 39; Beetlejuice & # 39; with the words & # 39; It & # 39; s showtime & # 39 ;.
To which a user replied that the account wins & # 39; the Twitter prize & # 39 ;.
