New Stick Insect Discovered
In the Philippines, a new stick insect was discovered, but it is unlike any other stick insect. This stick insect has no wings, lives on the ground instead of the trees, and has a turquoise head, and an orange body. But most amazing of all, it releases a foul odor when it comes across a predator. Since it is so different from the normal stick insect, scientists have given it its own genus. Scientists are still trying to find out what it is.
