Here is documentary evidence which proves the opposite:

Oh praying mantises are sooo cute! They're the one bug I like.

Did that mantis do a vertical-takedown on that bird?

Man, no wonder Batman disguises himself as a giant bug.

Say what you will, but I'm amazed at that mantis holding onto the weight of that bird with nothing but the barbs of a pair of hind legs.

My first job was at a garden center and one spring day I found a dead butterfly in the leaves of a shrub.

I gave it a little tug, thinking, aw. Poor thing. But these shrubs need to be clean, so.

It didn't come out! A stronger tug didn't remove it, either.

It took like thirty seconds for me to realize I was in a tug-of-war with a probably really irritated praying mantis before I let go and just let the thing go on with its meal. I think I've still got pictures around somewhere.

Here's a fine addition to the genre. That ramification!

Update: this is a proboscis worm that's dying because it requires water pressure to maintain its bodily integrity. Word on the street is it's vomiting out its entire respiratory system, there.

petition for not using BEATURL to link to things on external sites. I closed the article tab and was like 'where's TT?'.

Anyway, linking a pic is [*url=URL][*img]IMG[/img][/url] minus the asterisks

Ya'll seem awfully worried about some dumb crab whereas I am pants-shittingly terrified of this crab-eating hell baby.
