Stick Insects

Origins & Characteristics

“Diapherodes gigantea, also known as the Green Bean insect, is a great stick insect to have for many reasons. Gigantea is a beautiful bright lime green, with the body being very heavy, the females measuring up to 5 inches long.

The males can fly, and ova take about 4 months to hatch. D. gigantea comes from the Caribbean Islands.”

All About Greeny & Frederick

We now have two stick insects, one male and one female. Our female Greeny is very impressive to look at being lime green and very big! They enjoy spending their time hanging from the lid of their enclosure or eating bramble. They don’t mind being handled and our male Fredrick even likes to show off his wings to us on rare occasions.”

We Love

Eating leaves and hanging from the top of our enclosure

We don't like

Being handled too much
