Notes Rq6 pg 374 Ambush Stealth vs Perception (with Camouflaged penalty). Forelimbs attack first - success grips. Special Effect either Pin Weapon or Kill Silently - next round mandibles with aimed shot at neck, abdomen, chest. If victim gets free or initial attack fails - mantis flies away. Flying 10m
