After few days to get ready the soil, the terrarium, and the correct conditions for this small ecosystem we have introduced the stick bugs. This is a big family with two parents and nine sons.

There are many conditions and characteristics that you must know to look after them.

First of all they eat rose plant leaves, they must have a temperature between 21º and 27º C. and at the moment they are living in one of the terrariums. If this family grows we will have more of them in other terrariums in the school.
