Mantis Battles Hummingbird


In The Red Hourglass, I mentioned the case of a mantid preying on a mouse. This video shows something almost as startling. The mantid seems to have staked out a hummingbird feeder. . .

  2. Yeah, that looks legit to me. You can find more on Youtube, but be warned that many of them pretty gruesome.
