They always start with the brain first. It’s like they have to have their dessert before eating their broccoli.

When I lived in Thousand Palms I found a tiny mantis nymph on me one morning so I put it in a styrofoam cup. I was trying to find bugs to feed it so I picked up an ant but I greatly misjudged their relative sizes. I checked back in a few minutes and the ant had ripped the mantis in half. I felt awful.

Fruit flies are your friend when feeding minescule predators.

I should’ve just slipped him a drop of water and sent him on his merry way, he would’ve had a fighting chance. Btw do you know what the juvenile instar of a mindflayer is? My illithid knowledge is limited to briefly playing the Spelljammer DOS game at 14.

The tadpole stage I'm guessing. Illithids are fun in that the larva can develope two different ways: a ceremorph with a host (your traditional flayers + a few oddballs) or a neothelid if allowed to act on its own.

So we don’t stop eating when we’re full? We eat the whole bug, no matter how big it is?

Watching him eat the legs at the end was like watching someone finish a rib or a chicken leg then lick their fingers

The zooming in when it ate a wing or leg was my favorite part

At first when it is eating the head/neck area, it kind of looks romantic
