Five-legged Stick Insect
Note the curled, right foreleg of this Stick Insect :p
Insects, like many other arthropods display a certain degree of restoration powers!
This stick insect is no exclusion. Stick insects often break off one of their legs as a distraction to threats (much like the lizards breaking off their tails). These legs will grow back the next time the stick insect moults, albeit at a shorter length.
However, the legs do not regenerate in old and adult stick insects (that no longer moults).
