Thailand stick insects
Thailand stick insects have both males and females occuring in equal numbers . The females are long and green, the males are much thinner and dark brown.

Thailand stick insects eat bramble/blackberry leaves and are active when handled. Thailand stick insects are thin and fast moving, so need to be handled carefully. For this reason, they are not suitable to be handled by young children.

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 are easy to breed, they mate regularly and their eggs hatch quickly, after just two months. Keep the newly hatched Thailand stick insects in the same ELC cage as the adults.

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).
