This is Chilli, my pet Cyclone Larry Stick Insect. I got her very recently. She is an adult because she has wings. She loves to munch on Guava leaves! She’s very inquisitive and not afraid of rain. The reason I know this is that whenever I use the spray bottle to mist her mesh enclosure, she doesn’t try to hide. She doesn’t usually fly and her favourite food is eucalyptus leaves (as well as Guava leaves). She is about 7cm long and very twig-like. I think they’re called Cyclone Larry Stick Insects because they might have been discovered around the time of Cyclone Larry.
