A Stick Insect

Lily found a stick insect on the way to Pre School yesterday.  It was on a tap near the Senior Citizens building.  We all went out to have a look.  It had amazing with and green stripes on its body and it was very big.  We had a good look at it with the magnifying glasses.  What does it eat?  Stick insects eat leaves – but not all leaves, each species has a favourite leaf they like to eat.  It is called a stick insect because it looks like a stick and it has six legs like all insects.

Today we found a cricket inside the room.  The girls feed it a variety pf plants and they tried to catch some flies for it – “because we don’t know what they eat.’  then they gave it some water.  We learnt that crickets eat both plants and animals – they are omnivores.
