I have a level one Chinese praying mantis nymph. I was about to spray his enclosure so I was holding it trying to transfer it into another cup and it jumped onto the inside of a glass of tea. I immediately fished it out quickly put it in another cup and sprayed it with water. His abdomen seems alit let crooked but I may be wrong. Can someone help me please.

I doubt there's anything you can do beyond letting it dry off and hoping it didn't injure itself.

Considering how long ago your post was, if the mantis is doing okay by this time, it'll probably make it. I'd lightly spritz it with more water to make sure it doesn't have to live covered in tea residue, as well.
