The Praying Mantid Wins
While monarch butterflies are nicely protected from birds by toxic steroids that are known as cardenolides and that are sequestered in the caterpillars from feeding on milkweeds and then are passed on to the adults, they apparently aren't quite as successful at repelling praying mantids. I'd say this one goes to the mantid.
