4 Month Old Australian Stick Eating

4 Month Old Australian Stick Eating

The Australian Sticks love brambles - I harvest wils blackberry brambles from the local riverbank. The area is remote, so there is little danger from pesticides. I usually place fresh brambles in the enclosure once a week - more often if the brambles wilt too badly. I keep the bramble cuttings in a small crock filled with perlite & water - this prevents the sticks from falling in the water. Sticks do not swim!

I aso feed eucalyptus and roses to the Australian Sticks - my Indian Sticks will not eat eucalyptus.
