Jill The Jungle Nymph

I can be found in the tropical rainforests of West Malaysia. I’m the heaviest of all stick insects and second heaviest insect. I look very different to the male of our species, as they are much smaller and brown in colour. When I feel threatened I will rustle my wings and strike with my thorns.
