Hello again oh wonderful bug folks
Here’s another pic from USA River, Arusha, Tanzania. Great markings on this amazing beastie. No odd-shaped thumb in the pic this time sadly but it was about the length of an adult thumb. Seen mid December in our garden one morning.

Dear Wood Family,
Back in 2005 we posted an image of a Preying Mantis that was identified as being in the genus Pseudocreobotra. By 2007, we learned it has the common name Spiny Flower Mantis. Mantid Forum refers to the species as the Spiny Flower Mantis and we found the name Target Mantis in conjunction with the web search that led us to The Tree of Life.
