    They are quite something. Saw on that afrikaans program about nature where someone sent in a video of a biiiiig mantis holding and eating a lizard. The lizard was still alive and couldn't escape those daggers. I actually felt sorry for him getting chowed in the stomache while still breathing and kicking :(

    Freaked the hell out of my missus. Actually the hindu's believe that if you get a praying mantis in your house its a sign that you'll fall pregnant. Oh, pooh!
