Description

This book is the “go-to” resource for anyone who has their own pet stick insects. Written in a clear and enthusiastic style, the author (who is a British professional entomologist) uses her wealth of practical experience to share her knowledge about these fascinating creatures to a wider audience. It is no surprise that this publication has been reprinted several times and is still popular, decades after it was first published!

The focus is on five of the most popular species of stick insect:
Indian, Pink Winged, Thailand, Australian Macleays Spectre, and New Guinea.
(The rarer Corsican and Javanese varieties are also included).

The basic biology of stick insects is explained, including facts such as stick insects’ blood being green and their ears being located near their knees!

The book also gives lots of useful practical tips to help people look after their stick insects properly.

The book has 60 pages and has a Contents page and Index.
It has many detailed illustrations (by Jason Davis) and colour photos (including one of the extremely rare male Indian stick insect!).

The author will happily sign her book for you and include a message if you wish, this is a free service. If you’d like her to do this, please mention this when ordering the item.

Seller Reviews

  1. Anonymous

    Love that two sides are clear so that you can see the insects clearly. However, the enclosure is very flimsy – I actually had to glue gun part of it. The bottoms of the clear sides were not attached to the bottom of the enclosure and eggs were rolling under and getting crushed. I have to tip the entire enclosure upside down fairly regularly to remove the eggs that roll into the holes in two of the corners. Not impressed for the price.

  2. Stacey

    We are really pleased with our new enclosure. It’s well made with good ventilation, a great size, and the liftable lid and slide out panel make it really easy to change out food and clean. Ordering was easy and delivery was fast. Would recommend!
