The giant prickly stick insect ((Extatosoma tiaratum) has a distinguishing look because, unlike other stick insects, it’s body is covered in spines. They look very similar to the leaves of a desert plant and, therefore, are masters of camouflage. Generally, these insects are shades of brown but their color varies based on their environment. Females’ bodies are bulky while males’ bodies are slender. Also, females have small wings but males have long wings and can fly.
