New Borns in the Animal Management Centre

Published 05 December

Animal Studies


The Animal Management Centre has had some new additions over the past couple of weeks. In the invertebrate room, new Black Beauty Stick Insects have hatched. These are the first stick insects to have been bred here at the College and it has been a brilliant learning opportunity for the Animal Management students. The eggs take between 2 to 5 months to hatch, with the newly hatched insects being around the size of a 5 pence coin. In the wild Black Beauty Stick Insects are found in less than 5 hectares of the Cordillera del Condor region in Northern Peru. Having a species on the unit which comes from such a small range in the wild is a fantastic way to demonstrate to students the need for conservation of different habitats.

There have also been new arrivals in the small mammal room, with two Rex Mice being born 3 weeks ago. Rex Mice have curly coats caused by a recessive gene. The mice are born without any fur and with their eyes closed, so are highly dependent on their mother. Over the past few weeks, they have quadrupled in size and become much more independent. The mice came out of their enclosure for one of the first time last week, to have a health check and make sure they were growing well. They will be fully grown in around a months time and will be used in animal management lessons to teach the students about the care of small mammals.
