How many stick insects can you spot?

Stick insects are fascinating and unusual pets and are found in many varieties around the world.

There are at least four adults. Three are up high, one is partially obscured near the bottom, and on the lower right there is a very young stick insect.

This little “herd” is kept right here in Wadena by Brendan Wirtz. Stick insects eat vegetation (this type likes ivy) and will happily munch on lettuce. They do need to be kept inside a glass or fine-mesh cage but the adults can be handled outside the cage as well.
