What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Walking leaf?
December 10, 2009
Hey!
When we were travelling throughout South India (Hampi) in October this year, we found this big, clumsy, walking-leaf-look-a-like bug-thingy on our road.
Could you identify this bug for me?
Thanx!

Hi Marlies,
This is a Wandering Violin Mantis, Gongylus gongylodes, and we have posted images of this amazing creature several times in the past, including these wonderful photos from almost exactly two years ago to the day.
