Caption: Newly hatched mantis. This is a Sinomantis denticulata mantis, which is ghost-like and nearly transparent after hatching. It is a tropical species, found in southern China. Like all mantises, it is predatory, feeding on other insects, though the exact prey taken varies with the size of the mantis. As it moults and develops, it attains the green colouration of the subadult and adult stages.
