I saw an insect at Punda Maria which appeared to be a mantis [reading glasses on] that was not likely more than 1/2 inch [1.2 cm] long. Any ideas?

Hi mapleleaf,

Welcome to the forum! :D

You don't possibly have a pic or can you describe what it looked like? Hopefully someone with more knowledge will come by. 8)
