The front looks like a praying mantis.

I searched google images for "mantis portugal" and there are a few that look very similar. What do you think ?

I think it is some kind of praying mantis. Don't remember ever seeing one myself.

They seem to be more green than brown in many of the pictures I find.

I have seen a few praying mantis here, but they have always been the green ones.

Monster bug seen last night, outside my back door hanging on the wall. About 10cm long. I hope there aren't too many of these flying around.
