This charismatic Australian stick insect species is easy to keep and is ideal as a pet for home, classroom or office.
Easy to feed with fresh cut Eucalyptus and other native tree species and only requiring feeding once-twice a week. This is a smaller species which requires less room overall and makes a great introduction into keeping stick insects.
Males DO have functional wings and can fly.
Most specimens are tan, brown and black colours, whilst some maybe more green, grey, very dark brown or even close to black, in colour.
Males grow to approx 10cm in length and live up to approx. 12 months.
