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.
