Found only in Queensland, Australia and a few Pacific Ocean islands, these peppermint stick insects live on these screwpine leaves. The peppermint part of their name comes from their ability to secrete a milky, peppermint smelling substance when bothered. I found these rascals on a coastal trek along Cape Tribulation, Queensland, Australia.
