      What did you think of the display?
      the beetle larvae are meat eating beetles and there are also lord howes on the way. the beehive should be active eventually.

      The only thing I'd do differently is have some more information on the species not just a name and picture. Apart from that I thought it was great and I liked how they are all at different hieghts so even kids can get a good look.

      Will the Lord Howe Island stick insects go in with the giant stick insects? I was wondering what the small cave was for.
    • Jesse
      i don't think they will, i believe that the others will be moved to the spiny enclosure. the small cave is for the lord howes to go in during the day, the adults are nocturnal and the juveniles are diurnal.
    There are no comments to display.
