This Narrow Winged Mantis (Tenodera angustipennis) is showing off his colors! When mantises get angry, they flare up their wings and curl their tails, pulling their forelimbs to the sides to expose a bright patch in the center of their thorax. This threat display is intended to scare off predators, but to us humans it makes it seem like they have lots of character! Mantises are one of the most beloved insects. Show your love for mantises with this t-shirt!
