Pop In & Pick Up Weekend


Monday 22nd October - I will be on holiday until Wednesday 7th of November


Many of you will know by now that I'm off to Costa Rica (voted the happiest country in the world). My daughter and partner will be looking after the animals while I am away and I will sort out any enquiries and orders upon my return. Thanks to all those who sent best wishes, I will keep you updated of my adventures on Facebook!


  • Giant Lime Green Stick Insect (Diapherodes gigantea) Adult Pair (male & female)

Common Name: Giant Lime Green Stick Insect
Scientific Name: Diapherodes gigantea

Size: Adult Pair (male & female)
Status: Captive Bred

Food: Eucalyptus, Bramble, Oak.

Beautiful stick insects, the female is stunningly pretty, long and lime green, the male is a little smaller and green/brown in colour. Males have fully formed wings and can fly short distances, the female is wingless.

How I keep mine

I keep my Giant Lime Green stick insects in a large Exo Terra glass terrarium, a tall tank is more important than a wide one, as they need space to moult their skins. I have a layer of peat or coir on the floor (3-4cm) to provide humidity and somewhere to lay their eggs. I feed them Eucalyptus, Bramble and other suitable food plants once or twice a week in a jar of water, with tissue around the rim to prevent downing. They are fairly easy to keep, I spray them once a day with tepid water. My bug room is kept warm but if keeping them in a cooler room, I would provide a small heat mat.
