Hello everyone,
i have a male false garden mantis who has an injury on it back leg. I do not know how or when it happened.
I just woke up and found that It was raising up its leg and has not been using it. Will it correct next moult? DE4788F6-5635-4B3D-BBAD-AD911BB056FB.jpeg

I’m no mantis expert, but my mantis hurt his antennae and it grew back next moult. Not 100% sure about a leg though...

kk thnx 4 the reply!
Legs can be fixed in new molts! It might of been a miss molt if they had one recently. Usually low humidity can cause issues, try to keep stuff nice and humid, if you need too add extra holes if it causes mold in your mantids enclosure! If it ever has issues with the leg starting to turning black, feed some honey to help!
