Phasmatodea sp. (Stick Insect sp.)


Phasmatodea (stick insects) are an order of insects which can be found all over the world in warmer zones.
Their natural camouflage can make them extremely difficult to spot.
The photos show a mating pair: the much smaller male can spend several days on the back of the larger female.
