It's a mantisfly! They're not true praying mantids; they're members of another insect family who evolved raptorial forelimbs (which is, basically, the scientific term for "praying mantis arms") to grab prey more efficiently. Very cool find, I've seen mantids but never a mantisfly and I kind of want to see one.

Really? No wonder why it was so small.

Thanks! :D
