Female Goliath Stick Insect

Eurycnema goliath


It was about 12 inches in length and about an inch in diameter at it's largest. It has wings that were the length of it's body. I found it on a metal barrel that we keep the chicken feed in.

This is a female and too heavy to fly, even though it is winged.
