Carolina mantis

Stagmomantis carolina

Description:

This one right here was waiting for a meal on a Moringa oleifera. The Carolina mantis' color varies because the nymphs are able to adjust their color to match the environment they are in at the time of molting. They can adjust their color over each molt, if necessary, until they reach their final molt to adulthood.

Habitat:

In my garden, Fort Worth, Texas
