These bugs spoon

Via my brother, an article on giant insects that were once thought extinct. The pictures are the stuff of nightmares, and I only made it 45 seconds into the video at the end, but get this:
Howe Island walking sticks seem to pair off — an unusual insect behavior — and Goodall says Patrick "showed me photos of how they sleep at night, in pairs, the male with three of his legs protectively over the female beside him."
