A female spiny leaf insect (Extatosoma tiaratum) on display at the Australian Museum in Sydney carries on her back a male, which is half her size, during copulation, March 20. The spiny leaf insect, bred at the museum, camouflages itself as a bunch of prickly leaves to defend itself against predators. There are over 2,500 species of stick insects around the world and some fossils have been discovered dating back as far as 248 million years.
