Stick insects (family Phasmatidae, order Phasmatodae) are also called walking sticks. These night-feeding insects are usually brown or green and often spiny or warty. Females are frequently wingless and males are often winged. The wings may be short, or short, tough forewings may protect much larger, membranous, fan-shaped hind wings. Eggs are deposited from the abdomen in soil or stuck to plants. The tiny-stage nymphs usually rely on camouflage coloration for survival. Stick insects are found mainly in tropical areas and some warm, temperate regions among vegetation or on the foliage of shrubs and trees. Defense tactics include using noises, smells, postures, and coloration, or even shedding legs if seized by predators (the legs often grow back later). The inset body is roughly 50 mm in length, block measures 110 x 43 x 30, 150g. Storage box included.
