Praying Mantis

Praying Mantis

Immediately after sexual intercourse, a female praying mantis will rotate her head 180° and eat the head of the male. Therefore male praying mantis has an extra “brain” in its rear, which controls the necessary motions for copulation, so it can continue mating after the female has eaten his head.
