Have you been watching the Original Outer Limits on late night TV Lately ?
as the Zanti say
DO NOT INVADE OUR PRIVACY!
No.. I think they were just Stowaways that were brought from a Local Island or Mainland ..
aND... from the Australia Network ... !! LOL!
Stick insects Nobody knows what aliens from space would look like but, if Hollywood has got it right, I have animals very much like aliens in
my garden, some in the pond, and some in the grass around it.
I would think about the possibility They Dropped Off from a Native Boat or hitched a ride with a Bird?
The Next Question would be the Vegetation ?
LOL Well Im Guessing Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean) & Chuck Noland(Castaway (2000) Would have a Difficult Time Getting Of this of Rock
Island Surviving a few weeks eating the Insects and the Insects Food Source.. No Shelter Shade Clothing No Cache for RUM!! Etc... 13 miles from
the Next Island and nothing to Float BY or Build with .. is it SHARK!! Infested!!!
Well if it was in the 18th Century(1700s) that is LOL .. Talk About being Marooned!!

Very cool story! I love bugs and insects, they are a versatile asset to our planet in so many ways.
And huge ones don't scare me, much! lol
I am always curious about the criteria that make animals exceptionally large or small, and it usually has to do with predators vs food supply. I
assume these guys have zero predators and abundant food sources.
I love Outer Limits, they do look like the Zanti Misfits LOL.
Thanks for those other links too. I can't imagine a worse place to be shipwrecked (well, except for the middle of ocean with no land around) - no
trees, nothing but steep cliffs, and seriously shark-infested waters, but if you did end up there you could just wait for the next scientific mission
to come around looking for those Zanti Misfits...
Truly amazing that just 24 survived the rats and lived off one bush. Talk about not giving up. I hope scientists are able to repopulate the species
and release them back into a natural environment. I wont lie though, I hope that environment is far away from me. I'd run if I saw one of those. As
many have also said, it's cute the male sleeps with it's legs protecting the females. You do have to wonder if they have always done that or if that
was a learned behavior after the rats started attacking.
I think their size is related to the remote location of their habitat not being effected by the many pollutions and non natural influences. This is
why I feel deep in the oceans are very large creations resting. Interesting find.

Neat post.If they did not get there by birds they got there by dry land or really close land and floating logs,or high wind.13,500years ago the
sea level was 280 to 320 ft. lower,give or take by many variables(read Underworld,Graham Hancock).
