Caption: Stick insect. Coloured X-ray of a stick insect belonging to the Phasmida order. In the abdomen are oval-shaped eggs. Stick insects have elongated legs and bodies, and so closely resemble the twigs of the plants on which they feed. By staying motionless, the stick insect is camouflaged and protected against predators. Some species of stick insect even have eggs which resemble the fruit of the plants on which they live. Stick insects are found around the world in tropical and sub- tropical regions. Some species can reach up to 35 centimetres in length.
