Stick bug

Looks to me like this female twostriped walkingstick, Anisomorpha buprestoides (the big one).

According to Wikipedia "stick bug" is a common name for the Phasmatodea order of insects which includes walkingsticks. I guess that means you were right.

I like your web site. Positive reinforcement for a rhino sounds like a good policy. It probably helps to be a fast runner if you hit him!

Thanks Dave
Walking stick is the term I wanted! I just couldn't think of it for the life of me.
Glad you like my site!
Thanks again!
