    I recently got a job upgrade to education department keeper, which includes taking care of several species of inverts. Took the camera to work today. Enjoy ;)

    Awesome Jen, I love creepy-crawlies almost as much as I love snakes.

    There is actually a species of walking stick native to the US! If you live near a forested area you can probably find them.

    Many species of walkingsticks are native to the USA. We have a pair of two-lined walking sticks one of our interns brought in.
