    Heehee. Where I`m going, those things are everywhere.

    They`re one of the few things the damn Brown Snake hasn`t either endangered or driven completely off the island because they can fight back.

    Saw one fighting a two foot baby snake and holding its own just fine. Three or more will occasionally gang up on a Banana Spider and share a meal. The mantis is one truly badass bug. :-)

    I love how it`s taken, like, half a bite out of the eye. And how the eye is still maintaining itself, even with the whole in it...

    Although, I guess there are, like, twenty million mini-eyes, so it doesn`t really matter.

    Really cool photo, I keep praying mantis and see them eat stuff like this all the time. They also eat goldfish too, but not very often only as a treat. I place the fish in a shallow bowl of water and watch the insect fish it out its really cool.
