Sharing this "little buggy" with you: Walking Stick insects will often fall to the ground and “play dead” for hours. Another bizarre behaviour is the “dance”, where the stick insect sways back and forwards for hours in a peculiar motion, the function of which is a mystery. Many stick insect species, including some New Zealand species, can reproduce without males, a mode of reproduction known as parthenogenesis. #newzealand#walkingstick#stickbug#tarasutphen#fascinatingnature
Thankful I got my files off of my S5 before it carked it. I will post some of them; Our last trip through the Flinders with my brothers & Dad. 🖤 #PhysicallyAnyway
There is a stick bug in the 2nd photo; it was HUGE. ✌😁
Ahhhh look at this beautiful bab! And all the others like it! Our lil stick bugs have grown so much from just the summertime! These guys can self reproduce, meaning no male is required in order to have offspring, and they can grow to be around 16”! Although these guys do have a lot of room to grow, it’s still fascinating knowing they were only about the size of one of my fingers during the summer. I decided to snap a few pictures of one I held during a big show between the waves of people we presented to. Have to love outreach and watching people play with “creepy crawlers.” #insects#insectphotography#stickbug#stickbugs#stickbugsofinstagram#stickbuglife#stickbugsarecool
