if a mantis eats an insect with a stinger they can gingerly eat around it or they stick it in their mouth and spit it out.
they can bite and it is very painful when they do.
they can consume at least a table spoon of water every few days.

I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. Thanks for sharing that Mantis video! However I'm afraid I will never be able to look at a duck the same way again.

To be honest, The Mantis scares the freaking living daylights out of me. I mean, I'm literally terrified in the presence of this particular insect. I've had two dramatic "incidents" with the Mantis and both involved me pulling over on the side of the highway, busting out of my car and running away.
But thank you for allowing me my first-ever opportunity to laugh and look at a Mantis simultaneously.
