Videos of the Day: Beware of the Mantis!

A praying mantis happily chews the face off a hapless fly in this screenshot from a Youtube video.

Just to get right to the point, for random reasons I started watching various video clips on Youtube showing praying mantises mercilessly and nonchalantly devouring their prey. One clip showed a mantis chewing a live salamander in half (Google it), other ones showed a female mantis chewing the head off a male mantis as it mated with her (Google those as well). But the more interesting videos, shown below, show the mantis chewing on hapless bees and flies that foolishly flew too close to this awesome predator. My favorite clip is the one that's depicted in the screenshot above—which shows a member of Mantodea happily chewing the face off a fly caught tightly in its two forelegs. Apparently, this fly is the insect equivalent of Kentucky Fried Chicken to the mantis...and yes, I mean that in a good way. I love KFC... It's finger lickin' good. (That's what she said—or he said, depending on what kind of smut you look at online.)
