lord howe island stick insect hatching
This is perfect for a Friday afternoon… seeing a grotesque hatching of a alien like insect out of an egg that looks impossibly small for him.
In a world first, zookeeper Rohan Cleave captured the amazing hatching process of a critically endangered Lord Howe Island Stick Insect at Melbourne Zoo. The eggs incubate for over 6 months and until now the hatching process has never been witnessed. If you didn’t see it you wouldn’t believe it could fit in that egg!
