New pets!

We have some cool little friend living with us this winter…

stick insects!

 I absolutely adore them, it’s so interesting to watch them swinging from side to side and munching their way through brambles, and the rate at which they grow is unreal. 

Our twig like friend have provided an excellent opportunity for the little man to learn some interesting facts about living creatures. Did you know that a female stick insect can lay fertile eggs without the help of a male? Or that a stick insect has no skeleton at all!
