Latin species name:
Baculum thaii

Thailand stick insects
These are large long stick insects, females grow up to 18cm, males are smaller.

Thailand stick insects eat bramble/blackberry leaves and are active when handled. So they are ideal for teenagers and adults but not suitable for young children to handle because of their tendency to topple off your hands.

Thailand stick insects eat less than many other stick insects and so are perfect for people with busy lifestyles or limited supplies of bramble leaves.


Thailand stick insects mate regularly and their eggs are easy to hatch, the babies emerging after just two months. Thailand stick insects do best in the tall airy ELC cage

Pack of four Thailand stick insect adults (two females and two males) £15.

Sipyloidea sipylus
Pink Winged stick insects
Graceful stick insects which get large pink wings when fully grown. They can fly across a room and land on the wall. Pink Winged stick insects are easy to handle, easy to breed, and suitable for all ages. They grow to 15cm. Parthenogenetic (all females).

Pink Winged stick insects eat bramble (blackberry) leaves, also eucalyptus leaves. They do best in the tall airy ELC cage.

Supplied as nymphs, this means they are not yet fully grown so you can look forward to seeing them grow and acquire their wings within the next few months.

Adult male New Guinea stick insect
Latin species name:
Eurycantha calcarata
This is an adult male.
New Guinea stick insects
Impressive wide stick insects, males and females occuring in equal numbers. Respond well to handling and benefit from a lot of exercise outside the cage.

Great for young children to stroke. The nymphs are usually green and the adults brown. They like to rest in the Community Tubes (place these in the cage).

New Guinea stick insects live longer (1½ to 2 years) than most other species of stick insect.

New Guinea stick insects eat bramble (blackberry) leaves, rose leaves and hazel leaves.

They do best in the tall airy ELC cage. They are heavy stick insects and hook their claws in the mesh sides of the cage to climb.



Pack of four New Guinea stick insect adults (two males and two females) £19.

Also require a Water Dish (£1), a Community Tube (£1), and a Sand Pit (£2.99) to bury their eggs. Collect the eggs from the sand using the Metal Sieve (£3.99). Store the eggs in a HUA Pot (£7.35).

Express delivery £9.95.

Fat female New Guinea stick insect
Adult female.
BTW ... New Guinea stick insects are large and chunky and may accidentally harm the more slender species of stick insect if they stand on one by mistake. So keep New Guinea stick insects in their own ELC cage.

More info in "Keeping Stick Insects" book, price £12.50 (describes this species in detail).



Want to mix stick insects? If you have New Guinea stick insects, these are best kept in their own ELC cage. Due to their bulk, they can accidentally harm a thinner stick insect if they tread on it. But the other types on this page can be kept together in the same ELC cage. But don't overcrowd them, so twelve is the maximum number (for example, four Indian, four Pink Winged and four Thailand).
