Found the weird looking spider/bug looking thing early morning on my stoep.
Signature: I dont know? Advise?
There is not much critical detail in your image, but this appears to be a Walkingstick or Stick Insect in the order Phasmida. You can browse iSpot for members of the order.
Please see attached close up photos I took this morning, if it should help.
Thanks for sending in more images Stephanie. We still believe this is a Phasmid, but we would not rule out that it might be a True Bug like a Thread-Legged Bug or Water Scorpion.
