Euripides 3: Requiem for a Soul

The third installment of Euripides. I threw in a couple different bugs this time. I got in some real HD shots you may not be able to fully appreciate on Mucho's video player. Before you bitch about quality watch the closeups in widescreen on Youtube first. Also, the music fucking rocks.

Incapacitate my ass. I took ONE wing off the flying insects so they wouldn't wreak havoc in my house. The black widow and the fly were free-roaming. This is 2 legit 2 quit bitch.

yeah

I ll up vote that on originality and coolness.. Put him up against a scorpion in his weight range.. Imagine a 500 lb praying mantis that would be scary :0)

Euripides is too cute to boot.

question if he ate a black widow wont he die from the poison or are they immune to such things.. i need to know this in order to sleep tonight.
6 years ago
A black widow is venomous, not poisonous. Big difference.
6 years ago
still it can kill a human not a praying mantis..?

*wants to know how venomous and poisonous are different*

Venomous means the toxin must be injected into your bloodstream to take effect.

Poisonous implies that you ingest it for it to take effect.

Black Widows are nasty but don't kill people unless they're allergic, or the bite gets infected. Nasty, but usually non-necrotic and non-deadly.

NEXT: another opponent smaller than him, Bono's dick!!

Well, if you watched the video you'd know that Euripides has molted into adulthood. She is now 4+ inches and able to eat small frogs, mice, and all that shit.

Which I will be filming for Euripides 4.

throw in an adult tarantula (with all 8 legs please) next, okay?
6 years ago
I know you think you're being cute possum, but pound for pound the mantis rapes all spiders. The videos you have seen of mantises getting killed portray it as an even fight when in reality, the mantis is far more slender than its opponents.

so hes double your dick?

Every negative comment, I will take as this:

"Hello, Bono. I am jealous of your really cool pet."
6 years ago

I know I'm not supposed to post youtube links, but I'm thinking yak will let this pass because it's fucking brutal.

actually, i have never watched any "mantis vs" vids ever, anywhere else...i have only seen what you have posted here..
6 years ago
:O
Youtube is rich with them. They kill anything from hummingbirds to tarantulas, frogs, snakes, hornets, mice... etc. The reason I haven't given Euripides anything particularly big or imposing was because she wasn't mature - and I don't want to hurt my baby. <3

*goes on a search for the inside cover for ELP's "Tarkus" album now...somehow it fits

Put it in with a wind scorpion / camel spider in the same weight class, I'd buy a ticket for that shit.
6 years ago
Camel spiders fail. Mantis kicks their ass all over youtube. Besides, they don't live here.
6 years ago
Mantises aren't supposed to live in my region (western rockies) but I found one the other day at work. Cool because I'd never seen one here outside of a pet store. We do have camel spiders although rare. Most I've seen were in the two inch range, same as the mantis I found.
6 years ago
wait - you're saying that camel spiders are an indigenous species in the western US?
6 years ago
Indigenous? No Idea. Do we have them? Yeah.
6 years ago
If I find another one before fall I'll post a pic.

got excited by Euripides' badassness, sorry. Capslock fury is contained.

Bono, a suggestion for the next video songtrack. Joe Esposito: Your the best
6 years ago
I was thinking of using that Roy Jones Jr. video song. "When you niggas gonna learn?"

Or maybe just rapping my own mantis rap. But I will look into it.
6 years ago
Dude, the roy jones song is sick.

You know what the Greek tailor said, right? "Euripides, you pay fo' dese."

I think you need it to kill a cicada and cock roaches cause I hate those things and they scare me. Also, I want it to eat a frog and you should use the song lux aterna on one of the videos
6 years ago
let me know when yours gets full sized, ill go catch one around here and mail it to ya so you can fight them!
6 years ago
i guess i just dont like this...not sure why exactly...

there's something wrong with "staging" animal fights...- no matter what species

there's also something wrong with calling a fucking bug a "pet"
