Night dwelling insects of Wang Kelian, Perlis

Nocturnal, means "night dwelling", so a nocturnal insect are insect that sleeps during the day and comes out at night.

How can you tell? They have specially adapted eyesight judging by the protruding eyes of this creature.



This stick insect was found crawling on my friend's leg ...so named because it closely resembles a twig of the plants. The insect's body is long and slender, the legs are also twiglike.
