    Hi! Thank you for making this wonderful clip about phasmids! It's really nice to see these beautiful insects in the media every once in a while. Just a quick correction though: the first animal shown is not a phasmid (I guess it's a katydid species) and the insect at 0:19 isn't a stick insect either (I guess it's a Pseudoproscopia species) . If you would like more information and pictures about stick and leaf insects, check out my instagram or facebook page! https://www.instagram.com/stick.insects/
