I still get a bit gaggy looking at this.
I came home and found this spectacle on the wall INSIDE my house.
If your mama hasn't yet told you about the birds and the bees, you're in for a treat. Not only were these two foolin' around (even after I told her NO BOYS ALLOWED while I'm gone), but Girly Mantis then decided she had enough of her boy and chewed his head off.
Yes, in nature, the Girl Mantis finishes off her mate while they're... uh... talking about the weather.
We relocated her and her buddy outside, and she has since finished her snack. For two days now though, she has been hanging out on our kitchen window, and Dave swears she is looking at him while he fattens himself up at meals. I told him he'll be fine as long as he doesn't step out in our marriage for the younger, slimmer mantis.
