Praying Mantis Has a BIG Appetite

We caught a praying mantis today. First, I caught two flies alive. Then, he ate them.

Later, we gave it a spider, two Japanese beetles and an ant. The praying mantis ate one beetle and the spider caught the other one. Then the mantis ate the spider. We just put a baby cricket in and now it's eating it. It has a big appetite.

Next? A full grown elephant? A python?

  1. Poor, little cricket :0(. I guess praying mantis' are an important part of the bug patrol.
