Praying mantids regularly hunt and kill small birds

Postby jeffbert » 2 years ago

The writer finds it horrid that these insects actually eat small birds, but I find it rather interesting. Why should it be surprising that a creature of a certain sizes preys upon things smaller than itself? Or even larger, but not dangerous to itself?

It has long been known that large spiders eat birds, and I suppose, when 1st discovered, some may have reacted similarly to these people.

When mantids begin hunting and killing humans, then, we should become alarmed. Just see how these people react to THE DEADLY MANTIS!
