A long-awaited hatchling

After checking every day for 4 months, this little monster greeted me today. He is from one of the three Australian Prickly Stick insect eggs that I bought at the insect fair last fall.

So far, he has been very active, running all over the inside of his container. I have put some different kinds of leaves in there, but I don't think he's eaten anything yet. I'll try to get some better pictures of him soon. And maybe his siblings will be hatching soon, too.
