The young wetapunga hatched earlier this year as part of the Greenﬁngers Bugs About Wetapunga Breeding programme are doing very well and getting more robust.
Over 100 babies have survived to date, each living in their own container. At the hatchling stage they were around 6- 7mm long and some are now up to 20mm. Soon we will be able to determine how many boys and girls we have.
It is hoped that some will be ready for release this coming spring if their growth continues at this cracking pace, which will be the ﬁrst time captive bred wetapunga have been released into the wild. We’ve got all our ﬁngers (and antennaes) crossed for that!
Butterﬂy Creek are continuing their special offer of 1 child free with a paying adult until the end of June.
