Mantis Mimics Orchid To Catch Bee For A Snack

February 20, 2015

This is a video of an orchid mantis (previously: a bunch of pictures of them) mimicking an orchid to catch a bee and EAT ITS FILTHY POLLINATING FACE OFF. The mantises also eat flies and butterflies -- pretty much anything that's attracted to an orchid. Humans are attracted to orchids, will they eat humans? Probably not, but here's to hoping.

Keep going for the video, which I stole from our sister site Hedonistica, which I wouldn't have to IF YOU WENT OVER THERE AND WATCHED ALL THE VIDEOS LIKE I ASKED YOU. You're really not acting like a person who ever wants to see their family again.
