Mini P. paradoxa Ghost mantis. Just L3 so got growing to do
Beautiful shots as always! I don’t know if you are familiar with the character “Groot” but this mantis looks very similar to him haha. If a mantis were made out of pieces of wood and lichen I would picture exactly this cool little dude.
YESSS I love Groot
That’s a great looking Mantis, would love to see a full body shot as well.
Wow that is an amazing profile.
they are cool mantids. I have 2 females but no where near full grown.
She’s amazing, thanks for posting the full picture.
