锥头螳螂是如此迷人而又可怕的存在。不仅是有记录的昆虫中，锥头螳螂已经进化出了一个可以抓握的手趾，允许它抓握并且使用工具，而且它还具有其他非人类物种无与伦比的智力水平。 我甚至发现锥头螳螂模仿声音使当它和自己同类交流时，好像这种声音实际上是某种方言。 我想深入研究这些昆虫，但近距离观察锥头螳螂非常危险。它的大小，智力和从远距离突袭猎物的能力意味着它能迅速聚集起来并且在杀死之后检测周围。建议谨慎行动。
Common name: Mantis
Species: Empusa discipulus
The existence of a creature such as Empusa discipulus is both fascinating and frightening. Not only is Empusa the only recorded insect to have developed an opposable digit, allowing it to grip objects and use tools, but it possesses a level of intelligence that is unrivalled among non-human species. I have even found clear patterns in the sounds Empusa makes when communicating with its own kind, as though it is actually using some kind of dialect. I would love to study these interactions in depth, but observing Empusa up close is extremely dangerous. Its size, intelligence and ability to pounce on its prey from a great distance mean that one could be quickly swarmed and killed upon detection. Caution is recommended.
Though a dangerous task, successfully taming Empusa can prove highly beneficial. Its unique claws allow it to wield melee weapons like spears or pikes in battle, and use tools while harvesting resources. This makes it deadly as a mount or footsoldier and highly efficient as a gatherer.
