The name Nina means ‘little girl’. Only around one in one thousand Indian stick insects is a male and the females are able to lay fertile eggs without mating.
I love playing and adventure.
Stick Insects have a combination of suckers and claws on their feet, allowing them to walk up vertical surfaces and even upside down.
I like to keep to myself.
Indian stick insects look almost identical to a stick in shape and colour.
Indian Stick insects have the ability to slightly change their colour; at night time they can become slightly darker than by day, helping them to blend in even better with their surroundings.
But I love to dance!
Many species have a rocking motion, where the body sways from side to side, like leaves or twigs swaying in the breeze.
