CHILDREN’S STICK INSECTTropidoderus childrenii©petrichor
Child’s Stick is a species of stick insect found in Australia.  Children’s stick insect being about 110 millimetres (4.3 in) long can  be quite gracious but when they reproduce they can reach plague  proportions and can wipe out eucalypt forests. During adulthood the children’s stick insect mate more than once and this species is parthenogenic so its whole life as an adult, the female children’s stick insect is laying eggs. From Winter to Autumn, (winter laid autumn hatched) the eggs will hatch forming an army of baby stick insects.
