Researchers observed mantis sexual deathmatches… for science


Sex is the reason we're all here today. If it wasn't for reproduction, well, life wouldn't exist now would it? Most of the time, mating between two members of a species results in one or more offspring, as the two maters go on with their lives. Not so in the mantis world, where females are notorious for killing and eating their male sexual partners immediately after the act is completed.

This is true of most species of mantis, but the males of one species, in particular, the springbok mantis, seem to be able to avoid death in many cases. How exactly do they do this? That's exactly what scientists wanted to figure out, and the answer is actually pretty interesting.
