We found this praying mantis on our door in tanzania, it wasn’t very large but the lack of pigmentation made it intriguing. It was in September in Iringa, Tanzania, East Africa. Wondered if you could be of help!
We believe the reason this Mantis is so light is that it is freshly molted and its exoskeleton has still not hardened and darkened. Furthermore, we are unable to identify its species as it is an immature specimen.
