My Black Beauty Stick Insects

Welcome to another episode of Natural World Facts!
This video is all about my brand new pet Black Beauty Stick Insects.

The Black Beauty Stick Insect (Peruphasma Schultei) is native only to Peru, and is very common in captivity. They are velvety - black in colour with bright yellow eyes and red wings which are displayed when the stick insect feels threatened. Black Beautys will also spray an irritant chemical from behind the eyes to deter predators.

Thank you SO MUCH to Miss Mott, my form tutor, for giving me these amazing insects!!!!! They've laid 3 EGGS ALREADY :)
