Cannibalism can happen, particularly if you put a male and female praying mantis together in a confined space, like a jar. However, in nature, there’s actually a very elaborate courtship behavior that occurs, where the male pretty much puts the female in a trance through a dance that he does. If he’s lucky, he’ll dazzle the female enough to mate and then run away before she wakes up!
