Anyone know what this is? Found on a fence post, and at first glance, it looked like a piece of dried grass. The top of the post is about 3 cm x 4 cm, so I would guess that makes it around 5cm high. It doesn’t look like any stick insect I’ve seen before, and anyway it only seems to have 4 legs so it can’t be an insect at all can it?
