Today my wife was working in the garden and when she went the watering can there was a walking stick on it. She had always wondered why she never saw one because we live in a very wooded area. Well today she had one walk on her hand. What do they eat and what eats them?

Hi Brian,
Walkingsticks feed upon foliage, often the leaves of broadleaf trees.  We have never seen a photo of a Walkingstick being eaten by anything, though we imagine insectivorous birds will eat them.  They have such good camouflage presumably to protect them from predators.
