I found an unseasonably small mantid at the arboretum the other day. Pretty much all the other mantids are adults now. Why was this little one so far behind in his development? Was he late to hatch for some reason, or was he unable to find enough food? I decided to bring him home and take care of him. I named him Lefty because he seemed to have been "left behind". So far, he seems OK.
