VIDEO: Cat vs. Praying Mantis — You Won't Believe Who Wins

Posted on

Never underestimate the power of an insect.

This praying mantis might resemble grass swaying in the wind, but that only means he’s got something to prove in a face-off with this cat.

All it took was a two-handed, double punch to the whiskers and the cat in this video was out for the count. (Well, it’s not quite that dramatic — the cat probably ran off to go find a more friendly opponent, like an unsuspecting dog.)

The stick insect was such an underdog that the people filming the video weren’t even expecting this outcome.

We imagine the cat is now training Rocky IV-style in Russia and will soon be ready for a rematch.
