Goliath Stick Insect - Seen 26/1/2014.  This is a female and is 2nd largest stick insect in Australia. They feed at the top of eucalyptus. Interesting fact: To avoid predators noticing them by their droppings, they have a very special way to handle it. At the rear end of the their abdomen, they have three large filaments. The middle filament holds the dropping when it comes out. They will flip their abdomen to throw their droppings a few meters away.
