  1. Absolutely beautiful 'Glass Mantis'. They are translucent in colour and can have red or blue coloured patches on them.
    At a guess, I would say that the mantis above is a male, although it's difficult to count the number of segments on the abdomen (Females have up to 6 and are generally bulkier, Males have up to 8 and are generally thinner and more skittish).

    Here's a video where you can see just how they get their name!
