SPECIES Taxiarchus giganteus
FRAME 21.5x29.5xD5cm Made from recycled products.
DESCRIPTION AKA Stick hoppers or Jumping sticks. From the family Proscopiidae this is wingless and looking much like a typical walking stick (Phasmida), these grasshoppers exploit a similar defense strategy but with the added bonus that they can jump away from a predator if needed. It looks like a stick insect and has the diet of a stick insect such as tree leaves but it is actually a real grasshopper.
