This is my other mantis. This one has been seen before out there. This one was discovered in our kitchen. Looks quite a beast too!

Hi again Ben,
We are going to have to defer to any Mantis experts out there to identify this Preying Mantis to the species level.  It is not as distinctive as your immature Spiny Flower Mantis.

    It is a male mantis of the genus Sphodromantis, which is widespread throughout Africa. I am not sure of the exact species although you may want to look up for Sphodromantis sp. from Kenya
