Strange critter, update

I just heard from a follower of my blog, who gave me the identity of this strange insect:   https://ytaba36.wordpress.com/2011/08/03/strange-critter/

Here it is, in all its interesting glory:   http://www.keepinginsects.com/stick-insect/species/giant-prickly-stick-insect/

Well done, Melissa, and thank you!

    And it wouldn’t be nearly as lovely and snuggly as a cat.

    Yes, very well done! That was very interesting. And a very smart creature to mimmic a scorpion to avoid being eaten…unless it should run into a meerkat….those darling creatures think scorpions are lovely snacks.
    I think it’s safe though because they don’t live in the same part of the world.
