young Macleays Spectre
Latin species name:
Extatosoma tiaratum
Australian Macleays Spectre stick insects with HUA Pot
These amazing stick insects have leafy looking legs and curl their tails up to look like scorpions (but they are harmless).
We are offering a kit of a HUA Pot and three young stick insects. They have completed their first skin change and so are about one month old.

Keep them in the HUA Pot for another month and feed with fresh Eucalyptus gunnii leaves. You can collect these leaves yourself or purchase fresh cut eucalyptus leaves from us. We also sell potted eucalyptus plants which have been grown without chemicals so they are safe for the stick insects to eat.

In a month's time transfer the stick insects to a larger airy cage, the ELC cage is ideal. These Australian Macleays Spectre stick insects must have plenty of air flow in the cage to thrive, so require a cage with two opposite mesh sides.

The larger stick insects can switch to eating bramble leaves. If you wish to do this, introduce the bramble gradually, so provide both bramble and eucalyptus at the same time. You can then introduce bramble leaves as well as eucalyptus leaves into the cage.

These Australian Macleays Spectre stick insects are supplied as nymphs, this means they are not yet fully grown so you can look forward to seeing them grow dramatically over the next few months. The males acquire their wings when they are adults.




Pack of three Australian Macleays Spectre stick insects, HUA Pot, 20 HUA Liners £22.
Optional extra:Small bag of freshly picked tender eucalyptus leaves £1.50.
Optional extra:Large potted eucalyptus plant £14.50.


Express delivery £9.95.
