Acrophylla titan is a type of walking stick. These grand creatures use their entire bodies for camouflage. They tend to blend in using both the color of their bodies and shape. As you can see they closely resemble sticks, hence the name walking stick. These creatures are also very good pets. Many pet stores are now selling them for companionship!
