Stick bugs, back again

This is a crazy, crazy story about giant bugs that used to live on an island called Lord Howe. They were big insects that pretended to be pieces of wood and were so big, they were nicknamed ‘tree lobsters.’ Well, in the 20s, rats invaded their islands, and with no known predators, totally destroyed the stick bug population until they were presumed extinct. But then! Scientists had heard stories since the 60s about stick bug appearances on a big rock 13 miles from Lord Howe. I’m not going to ruin it, because the story is fascinating. Check it out, especially for the pictures.
