I bought stick insect eggs about a month ago and have watching them daily for signs of life. Rob has been laughing saying that I had been done, and they were in fact just bits of gravel! PAH!!! what does he know!
Last Tuesday night I checked the eggs... no sign of life. Wednesday morning... no sign of life. Wednesday afternoon I walk into the kitchen to see a little stick insect walking along the work surface! So not only had it hatched unnoticed, it had also escaped from the tank and was making a bid for freedom. I scooped it up and returned it to the tank and inspected the eggs. Still 10, all looking exactly as they did before. So this made me wonder whether this was the first to have hatched or if others have hatched and escaped unnoticed!!!
This morning when I went into the kitchen I noticed that we now have two babies. This one still has its egg stuck to its foot... poor thing!
Oliver has chosen the names Adam and Jamie for the new family members. I suspect that any further additions will also be named after his classmates...LOL!!!
GameThis game is on the dining room table from last night. It is a Thomas the Tank Engine version of the old classic, frustration. Although it is deemed as being 'uncool' to like Thomas when you get to the grand old age of 4... Oliver still loves to play with his trains and this game, but only when his friends are not here of course!
