Phokojwe. :thumbs_up:
"Should you happen to be wandering around a campsite in Kruger at night, direct your torch light into the trees – if your eyes are sharp enough you might catch a glimpse of South Africa's longest stick insect.
The giant stick insect, Bactrododema krugeri, was only recently named. This amazing insect is almost 30cm long when its legs are stretched out. The female stick insect has a longer body than the male, with a length of 193mm compared to 163mm. However, when legs are taken into account the male is 295mm long compared to the female's 226mm".

:thumbs_up: Grantmissy... :think: Onewithnature will have the right "medicine" to give them. :)
:hmz: These little "critters" develop successfully on a range of crop hosts including citrus, mango, macadamia, grape and peach; ornamentals such as the succulent Kalanchoe blossfeldiana, and on native plants such as Acacia, Grevillea and Eucalyptus. What are they called?
