Part 2: Private Detective’s Encounters with Non-Humans

“I wondered if the entity’s eyes were some kind of lens covering on the eyes that might be used to analyze things or see different wavelengths around - like welding goggles, they reflect light and only allow so much light in.”

- “Joshua Rhinehall,” Private Investigator, Pacific Northwest

Mantis forelegs can strike and retract in half the time a human can blink. While they usually prey on insects and spiders, their speed is so great that they will take down animals three times their size such as lizards, chameleons, frogs, fish, small mammals, and even birds and hummingbirds that come too close.

Editor's Note:  Wikipedia - Mantodea or mantises is an order of insects that contains approximately 2,200 species in nine families worldwide in temperate and tropical habitats. Most of the species are in the family Mantidae. A colloquial name for the order is “praying mantises,” because of their often prayer-like stance, although the term is often misspelled as “preying mantis” because mantises are predatory. Insects form their primary diet, but larger species have been known to prey on small lizards, frogs, birds, snakes, fish, even rodents and any species small enough to successfully capture and devour. Most species of mantis are known to engage in cannibalism. Their large eyes can see up to 60 feet away and the mantis lashes out at remarkable speed to ambush its prey. ]
