Not a T!

Diversified a bit and got an orchid praying mantis (Hymenopus coronatus)

A little nymph about 2cm but so cute and already nailed 2 micro crickets. ♡
Little savages aren't they? :)
I saw a YouTube video once of a pair of mantis breeding.. The males head had been ripped off and the female was eating it... The body was still breeding with the females though it was headless... Takes the meaning of 'took his head off his shoulders' to a whole new level WTF!?? :eek::p

Lmao. I would say something about that and the males that we mate with but I don't wanna hurt their feelings..... bwahahaha

I have seen that too. I think they filmed as part of David Attenborough's micro monsters series. Apparantly 2 brains. one in the reproductive area. Very human like really ha ha
