    Recently hatched

    Recently hatched stick insects-possibly jungle nymphs, I say possibly, as I've had a few similar species and they can lay dormant for a year or 2.
    Approx 5mm in length and ridiculously quick for their size! My adult female just died, she was almost 2 years old, which is very old for an adult.
    As you can see, perfectly camouflaged against their preferred food source. I had to "encourage" them to move to the leaf in order to get a clear shot. You have to be very careful when replacing the plants!

    Very good. At a quick glance you would never know they were there.
