Just love this pic of my sons spiny leaf insect !
They are the cutest
My step son breeds them, this is one of the babies
Not a fan of inverts but I will say they have cool eyes at least, lol.
One of mine. We've got about 50 of them now. Hatched them all ourselves from a friend's eggs.
They are awesome! I'd love to hatch some too! Ate there any tricks to hatch the eggs?
Lots of moisture!
Rested our eggs on sphagnum moss in a closed container with ventilation in the top and sprayed them once a day. The ones we sprayed a bit too much unfortunately got mould on them so it can be a bit of a trick to get the right amount of moisture. The eggs look really pretty too!
Now I can't wait to see some eggs! Thanks Rowie!
I lost mine to a sudden Singapore ant mass attack. Turned out we had a supercolony in the roof. Not for long.
I love Spiny's, if wasn't about to hit the road I'd get some more.
Ants! I guess they would do some damage!
I pretty much only want an invertebrate to "complete" my collection, unless you count the crickets and roaches as pets... Then I'll have at least one fish,reptile,bird,mammal and amphibian
Even if it's just a piece of coral it's still an inverabrate
They don't live long though which is unfortunate... I've always wanted moon jelly fish but they don't live long either

Very cool. Mind if I share my newest stick insect too?
Pandanus stick? That looks really cool
This has been an interesting morning.
I out both of my wattle feeding- Botany Bay weevils on my hand for a pic, but they had different plans
You ruined their moment! lol actually...maybe not..carry on! lol
Yes. Named it "Pepe le Pew" (haha get it?)
Yeah, I know(unless it's a clam!400yr) I'd love a comb jelly, sun coral and/or scorpion

Aren't they they ones also known as peppermint stick insects?
i love those ones(idk why) if it wasn't for their need for pandanus I wouldn't mind one
Sourcing Pandanus in the ACT is a pain but I managed to get 5 small plants online.
Happy to pm you (so this thread doesn't get derailed further) if you'd like more info.
