Have you ever heard of a Spiny Leaf Insect from Reptile Park in Somersby of New South Wales, Australia? I know I hadn't.
Here is what this insect looks like. Just passing by, I can imagine that most people, including me, would have concluded it was a dried-up looking fall brown leaf. But if you look closely, you will see that this insect has eyeballs. Here are three pictures plus the posted sign describing it.
It appears that its real name is Maclaey's Spectre Stick Insect.
Just imagine. This insect's eggs takes up to two years to hatch. Wow!
Enjoy this live Australia critter feature. Have a great day!
