As the young stick insects grow, they regularly shed their exoskeleton, much like a tarantula.
The Indian Stick Insect is still more often known by its scientific name, Diapherodes gigantea. Just like the Jungle Nymphs, the female is much larger and more colourful than the male, but is too heavy to fly. However, they can jump a surprising distance, which aids in their climbing and exploring!
They have no natural defences other than their camouflage, using it to blend into their surrounding to avoid predators. They're very good at it, so keep your eyes peeled!
