Oreophoetes peruana

Post by Salt on Tue Jun 30, 2015 10:07 am

The first nymph hatched on 29th. This is a beautiful fern-eating species from Peru that grows to around 8cm. I received some freshly-laid eggs three months ago on eBay. Here are some pictures:

Wow that's beautiful! Very pretty. I remember the ol' "Indian Stickinsects" they were called that we used to have in high school (Wayyyy back) in the science class.

We did Mealworms in School, although that was a group thing with grade 2 when we were in Grade 8.

5th of July
Second nymph has hatched this morning, very happy:)
Also appears from what I have read that both are females, since I remember reading that males have small bumps on their abdomens which aren't present on my nymphs, however I might be wrong. First nymph has moulted to L2 a few days ago it appears, since it is larger than the second nymph and has white lines running down its body either side of it.
Anyways, here are some pictures:

Both nymphs

Younger nymph

Older nymph

Hm, that's a tough one. I always read other people's disasters with these species, however they have been doing just fine for me so far. They do require quite a bit of humidity (75% or so relative humidity) and don't survive for more than a few hours at higher temperatures than 25C (from what I've read), so they are a bit harder than other species of stick insects.

Yeah, it sounds awful that you guys can't keep imported inverts, but at least you have a better selection of natives compared to us.
