Murder hornet takes on “praying” mantis in epic grudge match of the century…

Praying may save us from murder hornets after all. Wild video posted online shows a giant Asian hornet finally meeting its match: a brain-gobbling praying mantis. The clip starts with the mantis completely still as its five eyes patiently watch the hornet — an insect that can grow to 2-inches long, is known to kill up to 50 people a year in Japan, and recently arrived in the US. It suddenly springs forward with its long modified front legs, keeping a vice-like grip on the doomed hornet which twists and tries to turn its head in feeble attempts to put up a fight.
