I noticed the other recent phasmid posted eats blackberries. Can I give this guy the same thing? Where do you get Blackberries from? I know it would be easy to try and figure what kind of tree it was on but I found it on the tire of a truck in the parking lot at work:?

How big is that guy? Pic makes it look huge. There's supposed to be a species native to the US that gets to be 6", I foret the name.

Anyway, when people say blackberry they don't mean the actual berries but he leaves of the plant. It's a thorny plant often called "bramble" (other related plants are also called this), it often grows as a weed in many places.

It should also feed on oak leaves, and probably many other plants as well.

You can feed it oak or willow leaves -- if they're not available try rose (domestic or wild) raspberry, mulberry, firethorn, hibiscus etc.
Despite the photo quality I'm pretty certain on the sex, age and species of your stick (but I won't answer here).
