The Lord Howe Stick Insect

These not-so cute/pretty insects grow freakishly large which gave them their name as “tree lobsters.” These large (very large) insects were introduced by humans in the early 1900s. And for nearly 50 years majority of people assumed they were extinct but they weren’t! They actually found many living survivors who were under a single bush. What troopers these guys are!
