Spot the stick insects!

How many giant Australian stick insects can you spot in this photo, taken yesterday at the Auckland Zoo?  This is rated “dead easy.” And do you see anything unusual about the species?

    Uh, one? I expect Stephen Fry’s ‘Q.I.’ buzzer to start screeching now.

    Why, yes I do see them. What is unusual? I will let others have a say. 😐

    I see two. They are beautifully shaped and colored. I’m sure some folks keep them as pets.
