This is exactly what he did on day and I was so sad it happened as I was hoping to get pictures of him into adulthood. Maybe I will be lucky enough to find another one.
In searching for him, I found another strange one.
I have never seen so many different species of Mantis as I do not living back in the bush. Some of them have very larh forefeet and others not.
This one was very long and slender and someone mentioned that they do not think they have ones which look the same as this in the USA. Have you seen one like this?
