This reminds me of when my daughter was young and I would order lots of interesting insects for her to raise off of the internet. She had Praying Mantis, Saturnaiidae caterpillars and some Sticks too. The kids always enjoyed them when we sent them to school. She is a grown woman now but still remembers the bugs we had in our house and thanks me for the lengths that I went to support her interests and to teach her.Whwoz wrote: ↑Sat Jan 30, 2021 3:11 amStick Insects, as mentioned earlier we recently received 4, only for one to find a hole in the cage, going AWOL. So down to three who are growing well

From what I understand, we will receive a female shortly and she and one of the males will go to the primary school where the Daughter goes, while we will receive a further female to go with our remaining two males. These eat their old skins after moulting. Wing case is very evident in top photo indicating male, females cannot fly.
I think that you are doing a great job at being a parent and getting involved in your child's interests. Not too many parents do that these days.
