The New Batch
After the (natural) death of the last of the adult stick insects in the cage the new generation are now being nurtured in the jars ready for transfer back into the cage when big enough. Despite having a missing leg, Stumpy actually ended up being one of the longest surviving!
The eldest two have already gone through a couple of molts and will probably be ready to be transferred in the next few days.
