The adult females grow to 18cm long, the males are smaller. The adult females start off green but change colour as they age, darkening to a deeper shade of green, or sometimes turning a russet brown.

Thailand stick insects are very easy to breed and their eggs hatch very quickly for stick insects, in as little as one month in the summer or two months during the colder winter months.

They are long thin stick insects and so are too delicate for young children to handle, but are ideal for careful teenagers and adults.

Thailand stick insects have small appetites and so are especially low maintenance pets, making them the ideal choice for busy people.

Pink Winged stick insects
An graceful species of stick insect, the wings appear when the stick insects are fully grown.

Pink Winged stick insects are green or fawn coloured as nymphs and then fawn with pink wings when adults. The adults should be taken out of the cage once a week so they can fly across a room. The stick insect flies slowly and lands on a wall, simply pick it up and return it to the cage.

Pink Winged stick insects do best in the ELC cage, preferably with the mesh lid. They are parthenogenetic (all female) and the adults glue their eggs in the white mesh of the cage and on Hatch Mats. Leave the eggs where they have been glued.

Pack of four Pink Winged stick insect nymphs £15.

Replace the disposable HUA Pot Liner every few days.

Replenish the wet bramble leaf every couple of days.
