Baby giant stick insect born

This video from the USA is called Giant Prickly Stick Insect, Extatosoma tiaratum, San Bernardino Natural History Museum.

Amersfoort zoo in the Netherlands reports that today a young giant prickly stick insect hatched from an egg.

There are more eggs, and there is a lamp to provide the right temperature, so more babies may hatch.

These animals are originally from Australia, and eat mainly eucalyptus leaves.
