Very cool find! Even though this looks like a Walkingstick, this looks to be a Thread-legged Bug (a type of Assassin Bug). If you have any other images, that might be helpful for finding an ID. Here is a link to the Subfamily page on Buggide.net. You can browse through the information and images there. Maybe you can find a match!
