A small baby fire angel was spotted prowling on snow covered slopes. Adult fire angels are formidable opponents who in their natural form closely resemble huge bright red man-eating preying mantises. Born with shapeshifting abilities, the young typically go through several forms before finally reaching the mantis state. This infant can already take out a horse. Nice kitty!
