Even though it's only a myth that North American praying mantises are endangered that still doesn't mean you can mess with them.
This meanie was harassing an innocent praying mantis.
It was just trying to hang out, probably looking for some bugs to eat, when this guy came up and started messing with it.
Well this guy definitely gets more than he bargained for when the mantis goes into attack mode!
Check out the video (above) to watch a mantis defend itself!
