Week 34 – Robin

WalkingStick One of our Florida insects. A female twostriped walkingstick. Anisomorpha buprestoides, also called devil’s riding horse, prairie alligator, stick bug, witch’s horse, devil’s darning needle, scorpion, and musk mare. LOL! This one was about 2.5 inches. Ick! They can spray stinky poison if disturbed. Nothing beautiful about this lady. 🙂
