Irchester lab_pets: stick insects!

November 20, 2017

This week on blog we are going to talk about the stick insects: they were jealous after the snails got a whole blog to themselves! Before the holiday we saved stick insect eggs: some hatched over the summer holiday, but suddenly, this week a few more stick insects have hatched! They are living in a little pot at the minute to get used to being in a bigger area. As soon as they get used to their new home and have grown bigger, they will move into their next new home. They are really different to the big ones as they are much paler in colour and are only 1cm long. But they are also similar because they are exactly the same shape, just smaller!

 

Our medium stick insects are doing really well and love their new home, they are only 3 months old. Soon they will be big enough to move in with the adults!

Our oldest stick insects are doing really well, but sadly one has lost a leg. This happens when they get old, and as stick insects only live for 1 year these ones are really old!

We hope more will hatch soon and they like their new home. We’ve decided to keep 13 stick insects, as we are Lab_13!
