Cool Christina,
This is a hatchling Preying Mantid.  It should definitely go outside.  It will stalk prey in the garden.

    I say always catch and release, unless they’re causing you serious problems, in which case I believe extermination is acceptable. I prefer to live in harmony with all creatures, even bugs, but sometimes it just isn’t possible.
