That was easy.
hehehe.. he almost got chopped in half when we were pruning the roses... here he is on my Dad's arm..
What a beauty this creature. Thank god you spotted it before it got ninja'd
They're odd creature aren't they? I've never actually seen one in person though.
Really?? They're pretty abundant in Northern/western Florida, although not nearly as big.
He was very lucky we spotted him, he is a different colour to the rose branches which is the only reason we did see him, if he was on a more grey bush/tree he would have been history!
Someone tried to scare me with one of these once in a workplace, they put it in my drawer of my desk, but needless to say it wasn't scary I just put it outside on the bushes, and plotted my revenge
I don't usually make it a point to go around bushes trying to find a stick that isn't a stick.
No, haven't come across one yet... or at least I hope I haven't when trimming things.
If you have never seen a walking stick you are either in the wrong climate or you are not outside enough.
I live in Florida and I have never seen this . . .
I almost grabbed one in Turkey once, it was sitting on the handle of our apartment building.
I don't understand what they are. Do they bite or something?
Thanks! They look so cool The most exotic pet Ive ever had are chameleons. Im going to look into these stick insects
Unsure of the first, but I've been outside plenty of times and haven't come across one. Or maybe I have, and just never actually saw it but it saw me.
I live in both Tampa and Jacksonville for almost 10 years and never seen one. Wished I'd had seen stick bugs and not those huge banana spiders!
Beautiful example of the power of evolution.
Ewwwww giant banana spiders sound pretty horrible!
Stick insects are fairly common here, although this is the first one I have seen in this house in 3 years... he was a beauty though, quite the biggest one I have ever seen.
This is what they look like...
ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww *runs away screaming like a girl.... *
