The Walkingstick can be found on trees. The way to catch it is very simple, just walk up to it slowly and swing your net into the tree. Be careful to not be too far away or you may swing, miss, and the lose the catch or get to close as it will jump away. Make sure to space well based on which type of net you have.

They will cut off their own legs when preyed upon. Like a lizard's tail, the legs grow back.

These will tear their legs off to flee predators... but their legs then grow back!

[edit] Museum

If you donate this bug to the Museum, Blathers will say this:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"The walkingstick not only impersonates a tree branch but will also play dead! Such deceptive creativity both intrigues and disgusts me, I have to say..."

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"Walkingsticks can skillfully disguise themselves as twigs or thin branches. What deceptive wreches! Just imagine going to grab what you thought was a twig and having it go SQUISH in your hand... Such epic foulness! Just thinking about that dark day gives me owl bumps!"

[edit] Trivia

  • Although the name of the bug insists it walks, the bug is caught on trees.
  • The Walkingstick shares a common name with the Walker Cicada and Walking Leaf.

[edit] Real Life
