Thread: Courting couple....

    Default Courting couple....

    001 by SuperGeeman, on Flickr

    My stick insects (Jungle Nymphs) have mated, this is the cuddle afterwards...eggs take up to a year to hatch, so no little ones anytime soon.
    Female is the bigger, the 2nd heaviest (not largest) insect there is. She has a bit of a temper, and if she doesn't want to move, she won't, and will stab you with her rear legs...quite painful! So please, no criticising about the position!
    Although she has wings, she is too heavy to fly. The male can fly, and looks terrifying as he belts around the lounge lol.

    Amazing!

    First thoughts were they were kindling for lighting a fire, now I can see they are stick insects. Superb camouflage in the right environment.
