    Dooo eeeeet!


    I like how smart mantids are. If dinner starts kicking up a fuss, Mr. Mantis eats off whatever's moving.

    I should find a mantid species that'll live comfortably in one of my terrariums.

    i used to have one....2 most entertaining scenes i remember was a) when they go through the eyes/brain and b) when they ensnare something that has armor on it.......the mantids jaws are incredibly sharp so the armor doesn't buy the victim much time

    LOL! I have to admit, this mantid was incredibly entertaining. I hadn't had one for years and kind of forgot how appealing they are. Sadly this specimen died the other day...I need to find another...

    Its amazing how easily a mantid chews through exoskeleton, isn't it?
