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 :)

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.

It is a mantis, right? Lol I was wondering if it was the famous Praying Mantis.
