The vast majority of eggs (actually called ova) that Extatosoma tiaratum lay are mottled brown, they can be laid as a solid brown colour and develop the mottling as time goes by. Sometimes the eggs have cream mixed in to this mottled brown but the egg that caught my eye is almost devoid of patterning and is simply pale cream with pale cream mottling. I do not know if this will have any effect on what emerges from the egg but I find it utterly fascinating. I've been keeping a close eye on it to see if anything else develops, I'm eager to see if the nymph that emerges from it is any different to its siblings.
On the note of nymphs I have the next project lined up for nymph accomodation. The stick insect nursery is still on my wall awaiting occupants but I want to set up a second enclosure to test the camouflage reflex that has been occasionally (but not often) observed in E. tiaratum nymphs. I'll be compiling an article about it for the website once the project is done.
I've also been adding content to the site. I started uploading data about betta care last week so fingers crossed that the stick insect care will follow!
