We hear that female mantis eats male after mating.
But the truth is more horrible. It's not only after.
She sometimes eats her husband before or during mating.

A headless mantis can mate. And even if he loses the head and the breast, it is possible for a while.
Praying mantis of light green felt.
Wires are in the limbs.
