Acrophylla titan – the titan stick insect

Look what I found on our garden fence tonight: Australia’s longest insect Acrophylla titan. Earlier in the night we also spotted my first gekko in Sydney standing on our front doorstep.

The Australian Museum has some interesting information about looking after stick insects. Their life cycle is amazing, relying on ants to protect their young.
