Hmm. I just read two different articles. One calling it a water stick insect and yours that says water scorpion. The one you sent looks and seems exactly like it, so I'll call it that. Thank you again MrsPbio! :)

Thank you so much MrsPbio!! Weird, when I found it I felt it familiar to a water scorpion! It actually says this one is a Water Stick Insect, I think. Pretty amazing! Thank you!
