Phasmida (stick insects a.k.a walking sticks)

A completely wingless insect that looks like a stick. They are very well camouflaged and are difficult to spot. Females can lay fertile eggs without mating, which is just as well because males are rare.

Above: Spot the stick insect!

Above: Stick insects are safe to handle and make quite interesting pets. I may one day include details on how to look after them.
