In a world first, zookeeper Rohan Cleave captured the amazing hatching process of a critically endangered Lord Howe Island Stick Insect at Melbourne Zoo. The eggs incubate for over 6 months and until now the hatching process has never been witnessed. If you didn't see it you wouldn't believe it could fit in that egg!

Exiled from the tropical paradise where they evolved, a tiny population of remarkable stick insects dodged extinction by hiding under a single windswept bush on the world's tallest sea stack for 80 years. Thanks to a dedicated team of scientists they're now living safely in captivity, but when can they go home?
This is the preview of our new film Sticky, a fully animated short documentary about the stick insects from Lord Howe Island. We put this section online for our crowdfunders back in April. The film's finished now, a mighty 20 minutes long, and we plan to get it to a film festival near you in 2014.
Keep in touch with its progress over at facebook.com/StickyShortFilm and if you know of a festival that would be a good fit, do please let us know. We'd love to hear from you.
Hello beautiful people! In a spontaneous yay-filled move inspired by High Five Day we decided to throw open the oven door and show you how Sticky is baking. We do hope you enjoy it so far. Go ahead and share the link with whoever you like, and do please let us know what you think about where it's heading. You lot paid Kristin our cellist and Billy our sound artist, so we hope you both feel and enjoy the special glow that only indie artist supporters get to experience. You have rocked, and you continue to rock, and we thank you.
