Call me a pansy but, that poor mouse. I didn't know praying mantis' ate animal flesh... crazy

yeah.. was kinda sad to see the mouse twitching while the mantis was eating it.. but those mantises (mantii?, mantis'?) are ruthless, if you see one near a bright light just watch it, they stalk up really close to their prey and then pounce from like 6 inches taking whatever they wanted to the ground with them, then proceed to eat their delicious, spicy,spicy brains (and other parts)

Wow, oddly disturbing. And that Mantis is only average sized compared to other ones I've seen before.

Look like at the end there he had what we called in the Army a Sucking Chest Wound. Grab a little piece of plastic stick it on the wound with 1 side secured and leave the other side loose. He will be on his feet in no time.

I like seeing things killed but with quick deaths, that was disturbing to me funny enough

I made the mistake once of picking up a Mantis. It dug it's little claws right into my skin and man I tell you, that really fucking hurt!

On another note, i bet PETA would love this video as a stocking stuffer.

The owner of that mantis is the one you have to worry about.

Must be the Blastoid kid for sure.

Shit, thats the way to do it, why kill your pray when you can keep the flesh alive.

A baby mouse for Christ sakes! If it were an adult mouse I'd have a different opinion but the little guy didn't even have a chance. I don't know how anyone could allow this to happen. The poor thing suffered.

shakehead you pillow biting bleeding heart, its a fucking mouse. i'm sure there are 10 billion others to take its place in one block of where it died. now i prefer shooting baby anythings with excessively large caliber rifles at long distances, but hey, the mantis needs food too.

I understand that the mantis needs its food, Hog, but did it have to be a defenseless baby mouse. That's all. Look, I'm no fan of the mouse... I kill dozens of them each year in my garage but I'm not about to destroy a bunch of defenseless, skinless babies even though in a few months time they will probably have there necks snapped in my traps anyway.

Yup, a bit rough - disturbing in the sense that the baby mouse bore similarities to a human foetus or am i going soft in the head? maybe we are quite close to mice - thay test all those new medicines for us on the little fuckers. Really didn't like the bit where it had no hand/paw whatever n was still squirmin poor bastard. The guy who popped it in there n filmed it deserves a slap thats all

I'm no mice fan either but shit, give the mantis a frozen one. That's heartless, poor thing being eaten alive.

Can't comment now, must roast pig.

Know how humans generally do not remember the first few years of life once they are older? I really doubt the mouse felt anything. that thing had to have been fresh-born practically.

^--Just because they don't remember doesn't mean that they don't feel pain. From the looks of it, the mouse appeared to be in pain.

^^^ Hey borat. Shouldnt you finish whatever you say about anything with "i like"???

For me, the most disturbing part was when you could see the breathing through a gaping hole in it's chest. Ouch!
