Imagine my disappointment when I was excitedly telling my husband what I found in the garden.
It went like this:
Me: “I saw the coolest thing last night! Two preying mantis doing it on a zinnia!” (I then droned on and on about the male appendage and how interesting it was to see how they mated....) Husband: “Oh that is cool! Did you see it to the end?” Me: “No I just videotaped them for a bit and walked away”
Husband: “What! You missed the best part!” Me: 😳🤷🏻♀️ “Whats the best part??” Husband: “When the male is finished, the female rips his head off!!” Me: “Um what?!? Let’s go run out now and see if they are still out there doing it!!” Husband: “Even with the threat of impending death, I don’t know a single male that can last that long!!” 😂😂😂 #truth#preyingmantis#whoknew
