Carausius morosus

Post by Salt on Thu Jun 25, 2015 2:02 pm

First few nymphs have recently hatched, this will be my third generation of this species. Won't really make a journal for this species but might as well use this thread to share a few pictures and answer questions for anyone interested:)

Freshly hatched nymph

They get around 8cm and they can be kept in communities, with other species as well:)

Yeah they are great insects to keep, low maintenance too!
However, I believe this species is banned across North America, so if anyone there wanted to keep stick insects, a good alternative would be Diapheromera femorata which is common across North America.

It's a shame all the cool things are banned.

Kind of, they do eat a lot and produce a lot of waste as a result.
