I think this is a Carolina mantis but I don't know? I have pictures for ID.

Cleaning itself.


Very curious.


It checks arachnoboards fairly often too.

Also, looks to be VERY gravid. If she lays an Oothecea(spelling?) for you keep it cool untill it gets closer to spring. then let it warm up.

Nice find. Usually the S. carolina I find are drab...
