If you need a nightmare tonight, watch this parasite escaping its host

A living praying mantis, a glass of liquid (probably water), a horsehair worm escaping out of it. This is not the first time I have seen thisalthough the mantis was dead then—but that doesn't make this video any less disgusting and terrifying, yet so fascinating that I had to watch it all. » 12/19/14 7:20pm Friday 7:20pm

This pretty pink flower is actually a mantis that strangles bugs

Be careful when you go around smelling flowers now, you never know when that pretty pink thing is actually a mantis looking to strangle your nostrils to death. Like this Orchid Mantis. It looks like a perfect pink orchid but is actually a mantis in disguise that strangles the hell out of its prey. » 12/27/13 12:08am 12/27/13 12:08am
