Things that are bigger in Texas

They say everything is bigger in Texas, don't they?

Well, here we have a Stick Insect. Nice little guy. For our UK viewers, the quarter I put next to him is about the same size as a 10p piece.

And we have some weeds. Though they look like small trees, we were actually able to just pull them up like a dandelion. They have that odd root structure which makes a 90 degree bend and runs just under the surface of the earth. They came up like giant tentacles! Most bizarre. That's my black glove in the middle there, for scale.
