About Phasmatodea

Phasmatodea are also called stick-bugs, walking sticks, or bug sticks. Phasmatodea have extremely long and thin bodies, which is how they got their name. They imitate their environment, i.e. branches, twigs or leaves, and can camouflage themselves very well. Can you still discover them in our mangrove forest?
