Possibly a millipede?

That's more or less how I remember praying mantis egg sacks looking when I was a kid in Ontario. The see lots on google that don't look exactly the same but I'm wondering if it's regional difference?

bonobothegreat - I think you've got it. Can anyone confirm/deny with certainty?

Yes, it is from a mantis. (I am an entomologist, lol, so I am certain)
