3 of us....incredible that they have even survived. Thanks for showing this. I'll probably never get to see one, not to mention the island, but am elated just knowing they still exist.

I watched it with my partner last night. As we currently have 13 recently hatched Indian Sticks, it was fantastic to see the emergence, moreso with the rarity factor!

It is interesting to see that young stick insects are green at birth and became brown when they get older.
