Agreed...I wonder what type of insect it is...
I just don't know. It's got mantis-like arms.
It sure looks like a praying mantis to me, almost certain that's what it is. You usually don't see them with unfolded wings. Also, it's almost certainly a male which are smaller, and almost certainly, he died feeling no pain as he was probably smashed out of his mind. ;~)
Nope. It doesn't have teh wing cases that mantis's have. It's a mantid or mantis fly.
