Tumbleweed Bug

We do not currently have any pictures of this specimen. Do you have one to submit?

You may have already heard of the Tumbleweed Bug. It evolved in southern New Mexico, biologists theorize, from a single deformed offspring of the Walking Stick Bug, whose mutated extra stick bits somehow attracted a female. From there it became all the rage (over millennia) to have more and more stick bits on the body, until finally the bug became too stick-y to walk - a state of being to which it brilliantly adapted by acquiring the skill of rolling with the wind.
