Usually we feature animal kills on a larger scale, when really we should be celebrating natural savagery from all creatures great and small. To that end, we present a praying mantis executing a swift takedown of a mouse. “You think I’m endangered? Well, that’s technically correct but it’s going to be ironic when I flip that statement and make you dead.”

Aside: when I was 9 years old, I, like many other people, assumed that killing a praying mantis was a crime, so when I did kill one, I immediately assumed I was a fugitive from the law and hid under my bed for an hour, because I was a dumb kid.
