Stick insects

Stick insects
The stick insect resembles the twigs among which it lives, providing it with one of the most efficient natural ouflages on Earth.

Quote by Tecumseh
A single twig breaks, but the bundle of twigs is strong.

The elephant tied to a twig and it will not attempt to break free.
Only one in one thousand Indian stick insects are male. This species is parthenogenetic, which means the females are able to lay fertile eggs on their own.
Stick insects are very good at hiding. At night they can become slightly darker to make them harder to spot and occasionally you will see them swaying. This is their way of trying to look like a stick swinging in the breeze. If you hold your pet, it may fold up its legs into itself so that it really looks like a twig.

Direction finding
Place the stick or branch into the ground at a level spot where it will cast a distinctive shadow. Mark the shadow's tip with a stone, twig, or other means. This first shadow mark is always west--everywhere on earth
