From Monday 12th April

As a non-essential shop I will be inviting customers along to my bug room to collect their order or choose their animals by appointment. I have added some "collection only" items to the website as an incentive!

  • Giant Malaysian Leaf Insect (Phyllium giganteum) Large Nymph

Common Name: Giant Malaysian Leaf Insect
Scientific Name: Phyllium giganteum

Size: Large Nymph
Status: Captive Bred

Food:  Bramble & Oak

Beautiful green leaf mimics. An all female species. Adults have an approximate body length of 10cm!


How I keep mine

These Giant Leaf insects are spectacular and make a great display, their size, beauty and camouflage is amazing. Leaf insects like to be kept warm and humid, cleanliness and air flow are also very important. I am keeping mine in a glass tank with kitchen roll on the base. I spray the tissue once or twice a day with tepid water, I try to avoid spraying the insects themselves. The nymphs are feeding on bramble and oak but may well feed on other plants. I place the food plants in a small jar of water and pack tissue around the stems to prevent the nymphs drowning. I change the tissue every two or three days to keep the tank clean and fresh, I replace their food once a week.
