Reddit user jackrunbackwards photo-documented a rarely-seen phenomenon: praying mantis babies emerging from their egg sac.

He wrote, “38 weeks ago a praying mantis laid an egg sac on a tree in my backyard. Today I witnessed one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen.” An hour later, he noted that the young were still coming out of the sac and estimated that there were at least 50 praying mantis babies.
