Praying mantises hunt down and eat small birds, including hummingbirds

We know praying mantises are carnivorous – they’ve been documented consuming frogs, lizards, and snakes. But they also kill and consume small birds like hummingbirds, according to new research from zoologists in Switzerland and the United States. We expect birds to eat insects, not the other way around, so the reversal is startling – and humans may have had a role to play in the deaths of these hummingbirds.
