It’s Spring and soon you’ll see all sorts of interesting and perhaps odd creatures in your yard and garden.  One of the coolest is the Stick Insect or Stick Bug.  According to Far and Wide dot com finding a stick insect requires careful observation; as the name makes very clear, it resembles a stick. This, combined with an ability to stay perfectly still for long stretches of time, provides the stick insect with one of the most efficient natural camouflages on Earth.  There are many varieties of stick insects. One of the coolest is the giant prickly stick insect. Native to Australia, it boasts the added feature of thorn-like spikes to further blend into its surroundings.   Phobaeticus kirbyi, at over 21 inches with its legs outstretched, is one of the largest stick insect and one of the longest insects in the world.  You can find it in Borneo.  Listen to the podcast here; https://theriver953.com/lonnies-fun-fact/
