I imagine that finding one of these in the ocean is like finding a walking stick bug in the woods. It's pretty rare, pretty hard to see, and pretty gosh golly darn wierd. As I was compiling research photos, I had someone ask me if it was photoshopped. When I said no, they then asked if it picked up leaves and stuck them on to blend in. No. This is how they grow. Even though we have photoshop, the ocean will out-weird us every time.
