The Adorable Boxer

March 2, 2019

One of the cutest mantis species in my opinion is Hestiasula major or boxer mantis (this is a first instar nymph). Hestiasula is a genus of Asian praying mantids. They are called boxer mantids due to the boxing glove like forearms and boxing like movements often seen as they communicate with each other.
