This pretty pink flower is actually a mantis that strangles bugs

Be careful when you go around smelling flowers now, you never know when that pretty pink thing is actually a mantis looking to strangle your nostrils to death. Like this Orchid Mantis. It looks like a perfect pink orchid but is actually a mantis in disguise that strangles the hell out of its prey.

Colossal pointed out its killer beauty and notes that the mantis can even change colors from pink to brown depending on its environment. Nature is crazy. Evolution is even crazier.
