The Malaysian Jungle Nymph (Heteropteryx dilatata) Male and Female mounted in a black shadowbox frame.
The Malayan Jungle Nymph (Heteropteryx dilatata) is the heaviest stick insect in the world, weighing around 65 grams (but only if we’re talking about a female). The males are much smaller (4 in.) than the females (6 in.) and lack the bright green, almost leaf-like appearance taken by the females. Instead, they resemble twigs: skinny, long, and mottled brown in color. Either sex is well equipped to camouflage itself amongst the dense brush of the Malaysian forests they inhabit. The females can display aggressive behavior when provoked.
Our God most definitely has the best imagination ever!
A lovely pair indeed.
