The distressed dog is shown resting on the floor as the video begins while the insect dances in front of it. The insect can be seen trying to cheer up the dog by waving its legs and claws in various directions but the dog is not ready to get up. The insect appears to be a mantis.
The video has been posted by Buitengebiden on Twitter on Saturday. “Dog is not impressed,” reads the caption.

“Me… trying to get the bartender’s attention to place my order,” wrote one user.
Another one commented, “His Grace, the Duke of Mutt is not amused by this jester. If it had been made of sausage meat, the jester would have been a snack.”
A third user simply said, “Coolest insect ever.”
Slow-moving insects known as mantids or mantis are distinguished by their front legs, which have larger femurs (upper portion) with a groove laced with spines into which the tibia (lower portion) presses. Mantids only eat living insects, therefore they use their spined front legs to grab prey in a vise-like grip.
