Walking Stick facts:

Their Scientific Name is Marmessoidea rosea. Walking sticks, or stick insects, are a group of highly camouflaged insects. They escape predation by blending into plant material. As their name suggests, they look just like sticks, and may even sway back and forth to more closely resemble a twig moving in the wind. Depending on the species, walking sticks can grow from 2.5 to 30 centimeters long, with females usually growing bigger than the males. Stick insects are the biggest insects in the world one species measures over 20 inches (51 centimeters) long with its legs outstretched.

Walking sticks are found on every continent except Antarctica. They mostly live in temperate and tropical regions. Within these areas, the stick insect usually inhabits woodlands and tropical forests, where it hides on trees in plain sight. Walking sticks are a favorite food of many animals, but perhaps their most effective predators are bats. Most bats hunt by echolocation rather than sight, so they aren’t fooled by the insect’s sticklike appearance.
