I’m Nina!

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.
