    One of mine. :p 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?

    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!

    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.

    I pretty much only want an invertebrate to "complete" my collection, unless you count the crickets and roaches as pets:rolleyes:... 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 :(

    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.
