Giant Prickly Stick

This week's prompt is: Bug

There used to be great small butterfly zoo in my area. It was in a small quonset hut with lots of butterflies, moths, insects, and sometimes anoles. The anoles were to eat the ants and spiders to protect the butterflies.
It was open only in the summer months and collage students majoring in insects, biology and such, would be the guides.
Sadly, it closed because the owner experienced health issues and could no longer run it.

This insect would be an example of the type of insects the zoo would sometimes exhibit.
