Australian walking stick

Female Australian walking stick (extatosoma tiaratum). To avoid predators this docile insect is camouflaged to look like leaves and if threatened, will curl its tail to mimic a scorpion. The one shown here, subject of the last post, is now back in her terrarium happy to munch on eucalyptus leaves.
