Walkingstick

WalkingstickWalkingsticks stay still during the day doing what they do best: looking like a twig so they won’t get eaten. They’re so good at imitating twigs that they won’t defend themselves or try to flee if handled. They can regenerate lost legs. They feed on foliage. Females drop single eggs to the ground, where they hatch in the spring.
