Found this little one on the back of a big one. Trying to determine:
1, Is it a walking stick?
2. Are they mating? or
3. Is it a mama taking a baby out?
Thanks for any information . . I also found this HUGE crazy bright red fuzzy ant, I’ll send photos later.

Mating Muskmares

Mating Muskmares

Hi Kelli,
Commonly called Muskmares, these are indeed mating Walkingsticks.  There is a pronounced difference between the size of the female versus that of her diminutive mate.
