NewsFlash! This just in! The walkingstick with the green leg segments is a male Northern Walkingstick. The walkingstick with the all brown body is a female Northern Walkingstick. See my article Female Northern Walkingstick in Riverwood Park, Mississauga for more details.
These two photos are of two insects called walkingsticks.
One photo was taken near Sharbot Lake, Ontario.
The other was taken in Riverwood Park in Mississauga.
One has only brown legs, one has some green legs. One has strong stripes on some of its legs, the other does not.
I’m checking into whether they are both Northern Walkingsticks or not. Stay tuned for a post with more details once I find out!
If you have found a walkingstick, did it look like either of these ones? Please post a comment and share your observations with us.
