Stick insect emerging from egg (Spiny Leaf insect-Extatosoma tiaratum)

11 Sep

I set up my laptop camera (all the extended-video capabilities at the moment) to try and capture one of my stick insects emerging from an egg.  After hoooooouuuurrrsss, I finally captured a really bad 33-second video of one tiny little Spiny Leaf insect (Extatosoma tiaratum) emerging!  If you divide the screen up into fours, the action happens in the bottom left of the screen.  (You may have to watch a few times.)

I’ll be doing some more videos in the next few days, and hopefully will get a much clearer one.  My Goliath Stick insects (Eurycnema goliath) are also hatching at a pretty good rate, so will probably see some of those as well.
