(TruthSeekerDaily) Although Mother Nature can be beautiful and majestic, she can also find terrifying ways to deceive us. Take the pink orchid mantis, for example. The mantis (Hymenopus coronatus), from a distance, looks like a delicate flower that you would want to pick and place in a vase for all to admire.

But it’s actually a tiny killing machine.

The pink orchid mantis, in all of its terrifying glory, hails from the
forests of southeast Asia.
