Praying Mantis Vs. Mouse And Then It's Own Mate!

The praying mantis has always been know as one of the most notorious insect predators. Watch as it makes quick work of this poor not so little mouse... it strikes with amazing speed! Would be great if it showed it in slow motion as it is almost too quick to catch with the human eye...



After a tasty meal it is time to... well you know : ) The male preying mantis really gets the short end on this deal! Rather amazing footage... I didn't see that coming!



And finally the last piece to the puzzle the birth of a new life... pretty cool to actually watch them "hatch"!
