Caption: Giant Malaysian leaf insect (Phyllium giganteum). Close-up of the head of a giant Malaysian leaf insect, showing its eyes (upper centre-left and right) and antennae (top). Leaf insects have the appearance of a leaf as a form of camouflage. In some species the edge of the body even has the appearance of bite marks, or areas which appear to be drying out. They are found from South Asia through Southeast Asia to Australia.
