Is it a twig or an insect? Well, both, kind of – it’s an insect that looks just like a twig and acts like one too!
With this kit you can raise 8-10 Indian Stick Insects (Carausius morosus) from tiny eggs. Hatching can occur at any time from arrival up to 2 months.
When they hatch feed the insects fresh bramble leaves, privet or ivy.
Watch them moult and grow into adult stick insects in their airy habitat.
Your little pets will live for around 9-12 months and will start laying eggs once they reach maturity at around 4-5 months old, so you can raise a new generation if you wish!
Your Living Twig Stick Insect Kit includes:
- 30cm tall hatching habit
- Instruction guide
- A voucher is included in the box to claim 8-10 stick insect eggs (stick insect eggs available year-round, weather permitting). All you pay is a small P&P fee.
Please note: These Stick Insects are not native to the UK, therefore they must not be released into nature.
