The baby leaf bug is similar in size to my baby stick bugs, but a stockier build, very dark with a red head. When I tried to pick her up, instead of moving slowly like the stick bugs, this little gal starting marching quickly, almost running on my hand, and did not hesitate to jump when she reached the edge of my hand! If I didn't know she was a gentle vegetarian bug, I'd be scared to touch her. She looks downright fierce! When disturbed, she rolls his little dark tail into a tight ball, looking like a biting ant.
We had a hard time taking photos with her moving so quickly, so this is all I can share so far:
