California mantid isn't listed in the drop down ID menu but I know that's what it is.
Lost it's tail and is beginning to grow back. Located on a small patch of dirt next to an apartment complex in about 85 degree weather. Did not move away or try to flee as I grabbed it. Last photo is for relative size comparison.
