this is the Jumping Stick, family Apioscelis. They jump. Apparently really well.

I like snakes, I like spiders. I'm the person my husband or friends summon to ID and relocate all manner of creepy crawly thingies. Previously I thought roaches were the only thing that would cause me to leap about in utter panic flailing and screaming "Get it off!!"

I know this thing is harmless. But if I saw it on my shoulder I suspect that I would leap about like I was possessed and shriek high enough to break glass. Not sure WHY, but I'll admit I do not find mister hoppy here to be appealing in any way.
