This is a video of a semi-transparent glass mantis gnawing on a blue bottle fly. You can see the pieces of the fly traveling through the mantis's body as it's digested. Eventually, those pieces will become doodoo. And that dookie will fertilize the earth, eventually leading to more plants and more flies and more mantises. Sing it with me! ♫ It's the ciiiiiiiiiircle of life, it's the something something sooooooomething ♫ Man, I suck at remembering song lyrics. Like, real bad. I always wind up having to hum the Happy Birthday song. Hum hum hum hum DEAAAR DAAAAVID hum hum hum hum hum hum.
Keep going for a video of the head-chewing in action.
Thanks to Charles W, who sometimes wishes he was transparent so he could see just what the hell is going on in his guts when they wake him up to go to the bathroom at 3AM. SPOILER: Angry shit brewing.
