Anyways, I saw some movement and thought he might have caught a bug so when I investigated I saw he had caught a praying mantis! I couldn't believe that this spider could do that and was interested to see how he was going to wrap it up?
|At this point I thought the spider had the mantis.|
After a few more seconds of observation, I figured out that the spider had in fact lost the battle, and the praying mantis had caught the spider! Wicked!
|Yep, definitely the mantis winning!|
The praying mantis then proceeded to chomp his way through this enormous spider bite by bite.
It was wild to see him chewing on a leg - looked like he had a toothpick sticking out of his mouth!
|The girls having an impromptu science lesson.|
Let me say, after careful observation of these two creatures, praying mantises are bad @#$!
