Stick Around Long Enough And Something Interesting Is Bound To Come Your Way
Being a responsible adult is really cutting in to my photography time lately, but I did manage to find these walking sticks (Lookus likewoodus) creeping about the place. These twig twins have a defensive method you should know about should you decide to let one walk up your arm. When threatened they can release a brownish liquid that causes searing pain to the eyes ... that info comes direct from a UF entomologist with personal experience.
So be careful if you decide to handle one.
