Gonatista reticulata, male“Praying Mantises of the Caribbean” https://www.researchgate.net/project/Pra...
Great first spotting - welcome to Noah!
Thanks Jemma!! ^.^
Welcome To Project Noah. Beautiful first spot!!
The turtle would have enjoyed having him over for a meal. Lol
I found it in my turtle's habitat, so I had to remove it from there immediately. But yes, even when they are hard to see, you can find them in Puerto Rico :)
It's still amazing.
I agree that it does look like a male Gonatista grisea. :)Until I read the link, I wasn't aware that they were found in Puerto Rico.
Interesting colors. I haven't seen this one before.
It is a mantis, right? Lol I was wondering if it was the famous Praying Mantis.
Very nice mantis spotting!
