Is it a stick or is it two sticks?

I was in the garden the other day when I spotted this huge stick insect in one of the bushes. It is about 26 cms long or 10 1/2 inches in the old measurement.

On closer inspection I found that there were actually two of them.

  1. I liked your post but it’s hard to “like” a stick bug that long, lol. We call them Walking Sticks. Here in the US, 2″ is a very big one. Lucky they eat the bad bugs and don’t bite people!
