praying mantises

watching a show about praying mantises, in High Def... those bastards are the most amazing creature on the planet aside from cuttlefish!

i watched a male praying mantis mate after it had it's head cut off and eaten by the female, continue to mate, and then once done, try to run away. with no head!

and get this...

besides cockroaches, mantises are the only species on the planet not to evolve at all in over 100 million years...

these things are from another planet or something. and they have purely neon green body fluid.

*EDIT* uh, just saw two mantises communicating in sign language...

*EDIT2* k, just saw one catch a snake, and catch a hummingbird

*EDIT3* holy god, the f*cker got a mouse!

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it

An insect that hasnt evolved in 100million years would have to mean its exactly where it needs to be to survive 100million more. Neon green body fluid?? Im gonna have to get me some of that in a jar, Sounds cool.

i thought this was going to be a thread about praying mantis kung fu

I have never seen one except on tv. I don't even know if they live in the northeast US.

They are the yakuza of the insect world.
