Hi! I'm Mona Octavia Sulai!
My Focal Taxon. The Phasmids.
The stick insects are of the order Phasmida and often called
the ''walking sticks''. They are varied in body shapes and sizes
and the longest insect in the world definitely comes from this
order. Stick insects are herbivores and feeds on foliage from where
they are collected. Their body are usually smooth, long and slender
although some appear to be rough and stout. Some stick insects are
capable in flying and their body colour matches and blends well
with their surrounding. As their name suggested, they look almost
exactly like a stick or a twig and therefore, camouflage themselves
very well to avoid being spotted.
Here are some of the stick insects that I have found during the course!!
