Headless Males Make Great Lovers

Did you know that the male pray mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male’s head off.

The male praying mantis has to walk on seriously sharp egg shells when he wants to hump.

Particularly frightening is that if he doesn't quite position himself firmly and squarely enough on the back of his sweetheart, she might just turn around, bite his head off and then feast on his brains while his body twitches to an end the act of copulation.
