At the moment, it is Theopropus season in Malaysia. The normal green and white form is found quite frequently but yesterday I found two of this rather interesting deep pink form. The other female is so dark that she is almost brown and the photos look 'boring'. Just as with Harpagomantis I suspect that this colour form is a result of the surrounding vegetation rather than a genetic issue but it will be fun to find out!
