Stick grasshopper



Mating pair of 'stick grasshoppers' found on a night walk in the forest. Female is the larger of the pair. Always a delight to find these insects as they are naturally well camouflaged.


Tropical rainforest habitat at approximately 450m above sea level.

Nice spotting, but this are not Walking Stick/Phasmatodea.
They are Stick Grasshoppers, from the family Proscopiidae
Not sure which genus/specie they are though.
