what’s this bug?
My son found this stick like bug hiding behind the gutter. He coaxed it out and onto a stick. You can see how long it is. I would say it was about 5 inches in length from head to tail. When we poked with a stick or moved the stick it was on too much, the bug would emit a smoke from its back. It smelled bad. Can you identify it?
If the noxious spray secreted by the Two Striped Walkingstick gets in your eye, you might be in for a stinging surprise.
