Mantis is a member of the Furious Five, a character from the Kung-Fu Panda series. And he is a killer in real-life as well.

The praying mantis is a killer who kills with unbelievable precision. They use Kung Fu style to fight and hunt. In Japan, they are viewed as a symbol of vigilance. Their triangular head with its unique flexibility is conspicuous.

The best part about the mantis is his flexibility. He can adjust to all environments. In this documentary, we observe mantises while they are hunting, when they shed their skin, and whilst breeding.

Fun fact: the female practices cannibalism while mating. After the mating session, the female mantis bites of the head of the male mantis.
