I saw a praying mantis, she looked at me this way 🙏 we had a conversation, and then she flew away.
She came back sometime later, and had much more to tell, but some things that she had to say, didn’t sit with me too well.
I am a vegetarian, and all joking apart, some things that she told me were tearing at my heart.
Her diet is so varied, basically anything is food, she did not have good manners, and was actually quite rude.
She told me of her cousins in countries elsewhere, she told me they think nothing, of eating birds….I swear.
She said, “I have no time to be fussy so whatever passes by, as long as I can hold it, then it is gonna die”
She just continued, to tell me horrid stuff, she said she has spikes on her limbs, and this is not a bluff.
She said she is quite able, to catch creatures bigger than her, she was so blasé about this she truly did not care.
“We can eat frogs, mice and lizards, I bet you don’t believe”, but now I wish that she’d be quiet, as I begin to heave🤮
She just could not refrain, from shocking me some more, it was about her mating, involving blood and gore.
She said she eats her partner, sometimes whilst on the job, or sometimes immediately after, Mon Dieu! Oh my God!
I thought mantis were cute, and interesting too, but now I have a few words, that I will say to you.
Whilst they are amazing creatures, I would not harm them so, but I don’t associate with them…no more, just so that you know.
If you fraternise with mantis, maintain a level safe, ‘cos they may think your nose looks tasty, and jump up on your face.
