The video recorded an encounter between an iguana and a mantis, the salamander thought it was lucky because it appeared fat prey, before he could do anything, the salamander was caught by the opponent’s killing move.
Mantises are insects but have extremely fearsome hunting skills, they are very voracious, can eat anything caught, even small reptiles such as lizards, salamanders or even snakes. Birds can also fall victim to them.
The mantis often hangs on the trunk of a tree to wait for its victim to pass by, then uses its sharp front legs to catch and grip its prey.
More terrifying, the mantis does not kill the prey before eating, but often punctures the skull of the prey to eat the brain as soon as the prey is alive.
After that, it spends a lot of time slowly eating its prey, until there is nothing left.
