Juvenile Preying Mantis (nymph) of unknown type.
Photos taken on my 7yo daughters thumb (size reference)
This is a very young mantis nymph. The coloration and shape of the body may help you find an ID. Perhaps you can find something similar on this site. They do have some nymph images on the individual pages. http://brisbaneinsects.com/brisbane_mant...Please consider adding this to the Marvelous Mantids of the World mission: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1573...
It is but not like the ones I've seen here in our backyard. they were all much darker. This looks very much like an african species - Miomantis caffra http://ketenewplymouth.peoplesnetworknz.... Are you caring for these ?
