I really wouldn’t be surprised if Hollywood scooped this bizarre insect up as its inspiration for the next big movie monster. Move over Godzilla.
Luckily though, its freaky face is the worst part about this creature. It’s really not dangerous at all. In fact, it’s just a Moss-mimicking Walking Stick (Trychopeplus laciniatus)! You have to admit though, this guy has quite the bone-chilling expression in the first photo. Definitely wouldn’t want to wake up to that staring over my bed. Yeesh!
