    There are about 140 different species that show cannibalistic behavior under certain situations. For example: female red-back spider, scorpions, praying mantis devour the male counterpart after mating. Another example: flour beetles, lizards, bats devour the young. The reasons may be to reduce intraspecific (within species) competition or to prevent from starvation.
