My friend Mr Sticky

Mr Sticky has been hanging out at our house for a couple of weeks, initially his camouflage act was not terribly effective however he has been practicing and now we barely notice his presence. Mr Sticky is a Goliath Stick Insect, one of 150 types of Phasmid in Australia and although he is a huge insect I don’t find him at all creepy. When Mr Sticky first appeared we tried relocating him, thinking that the dogs would find him far too interesting however they tend to ignore Mr Sticky and show more interest in faster moving creatures.
