A "pink" Mantis - Mantis religiosa - Female
Walker, Mono County, California, USA
August 5, 2020
Size: 2.5 inches
This little Mantis moved into my garage (4 days ago) and hangs onto the window screen. I have only once seen it on the window sill. I feed it 1 gut loaded meal worm (I have them for my pet lizard) each day and it gobbles them up!
