Your letter to the bugman: Hello,
Been seeing these strange insects around the house recently so wanted learn about them more ( not too long ago I even saw 2 brahminy snakes).
For more precision about the insect on the picture, at a certain point it was able to mimic a small piece of wood by straightening his whole body like an | (All legs behind and stiking to the body with his 2 things?? in front perfectly straightened forward).
Well thanks for your time and patience.
