Thailand stick insects on AUC cage
Latin species name:
Baculum thaii
Thailand stick insects
One of the more lively species of stick insect, especially the adult males!

Thailand stick insects eat bramble (blackberry) leaves and need to be transferred from the ELC cage to the larger AUC cage as they grow. The adult females can grow to 18cm long . They like large airy cages and so the ELC cage followed by the AUC cage are ideal housing for Thailand stick insects.

Thailand stick insects have small appetites and so are very low maintenance, making them the ideal choice for busy people short on time!


Thailand stick insects are thin and so need to be handled with care so they are not damaged. For this reason, Thailand stick insects are not recommended for very young children to handle.

Pack of six Thailand stick insect nymphs £15.
Pack of four Thailand stick insect young adults £15.

Pack of six Thailand stick insect young adults £20. * special offer*

A mixture of males and females shall be sent.


Express delivery £9.95.

HUA Pot with Indian eggs Indian stick insect eggs
Hatch out your own Indian stick insect eggs!
Just leave them in the small pot provided and wait for them to hatch (this usually happens night). Then place a wet bramble leaf next to the pot of eggs so the hatchling stick insects can eat and drink.


Replace the disposable HUA Pot Liner every few days.

Replenish the wet bramble leaf every couple of days.

After a month or so the Indian stick insects will be much larger and should be transferred to a larger, more airy, cage. The ELC cage is ideal.

one HUA Pot, twenty HUA Pot Liners, one small pot containing eight Indian stick insect eggs (due to hatch soon), colour stick insect information sheet.....£10.50
