    Default Boxer Mantis

    Indian 'Boxer' Mantids, Which is Uncommon Species of Mantis World, an Odontomantis species perhaps, so called because of their swollen front legs which look like boxing gloves. It appears to be a young nymph, and may look rather different when it matures into an adult, which may be winged, and very differently colored."

    First time I thinking that its baby mantis. but when we saw hard Grasping front legs. I was doubt that it will be new one. But I take help of expert about Identification and found that it is uncommon spices cannot be seen everywhere, as like green mantis or other common species.

    Information On this mantis.

    Location: sasan gir Forest.(INDIA) (in Local Farm House)

    Size: Approx: 1cm

    Color- Dark-Black- Brown, With Orange shade eyes

    habitat: found on grass, in between wild flowers and leafs in Forest

    Behavior: Same behaviors as mantis do, Hiding when we go closer, Trying to escape, his antenna continuously vibrating, very tiny. I was surprise when mantis jumped to others grass at a distance of 24 inch. It is difficult to find it again and we lost it.

    Nead More Information on this species if anyone Have the details please

    Note: Photos are captured in quick time due scared mantis. Only get 5 mantis to examine this mantis. and mantis Jumped off.
