Stick insects in botanical garden


This video says about itself:

Extatosoma tiaratum moulting

A female giant prickly stick insect moulting. The average speed is 5x with some time lapses. The entire ordeal took about an hour.

Accompanying music is by the Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble (song: Pearls for Swine).

There are now not only exotic butterflies, but also stick insects in the hothouses in the botanical garden in Leiden in the Netherlands.

They are giant prickly stick insects from Australia.
