What a shock I got yesterday! I had given our last stick insect away to Joe's friend who loves them as to be honest, Joe really wasn't that into them.
We had four ... 'Sticky,' 'Loggy,' 'Woody' and Twiggy'.
Anyhow I went to clean out the habitat and was picking bits of privet out and there was a tiny bit stuck in the net, so I went to touch it and it RAN!
I quickly grabbed my glasses and to my amazement there was a tiny baby stick insect! Only about 1cm long. I couldn't believe it!
So of course I had to redo all the habitat and we now have Sticky 2. What a surprise that turned out to be!
Can you make him out? Sort of laying horizontally about the middle of the picture.
I don't know if it shows how tiny he really is, but anyhow, you can at least see him!
