Thailand stick insects
Thailand stick insects are masters of camouflage, they have very stick-like bodies and some have stripey legs. The adult males sway from side to side to look like a twig blowing in the wind.

The adult females are larger than the males and so it is easy to tell them apart. Their eggs are easy to hatch, and they hatch quickly, in only two months, so you can easily breed future generations.


Thailand stick insects live longer (14 months) than most other species of stick insect.

Thailand stick insects eat bramble (blackberry) leaves.

Up to twelve adults can be kept in the tall airy ELC cage, larger numbers of adults should be kept in the AUC cage.

Thailand stick insects are active but are more fragile than the other species, so we do not recommend them to be handled by infant children.

North East Vietnamese stick insect nymph
Latin species name:

North East Vietnamese stick insects

These stick insects have very long legs and the females can grow to an incredible 28cm long.

North East Vietnamese stick insects have attractive patterns on their bodies and flaps on their legs to help with camouflage. They are long thin stick insects and so are too delicate for young children to handle, but are ideal for careful teenagers and adults.

North East Vietnamese stick insects eat bramble (blackberry) leaves.
They do best in the tall airy ELC cage when nymphs. When they outgrow the ELC cage, transfer them to the AUC cage. These stick insects can grow to 28cm long and so need the space in the AUC cage to give them plenty of room to grow properly.
