Subject: Tiny praying mantis?

I found this little guy in my university greenhouse, so the geographic location might not be relevant since it’s usually hot and humid in the greenhouse. He looks and acts like a praying mantis, however he is really tiny and grey! Please help

Mantis Hatchling

Dear J.D,
This is indeed a Mantis hatchling.  When California Mantids hatch in our yard, they are about 1/4 inch long.
