These are CAPTIVE BRED in my collection and this species feeds on leaves of bramble, raspberry, oak, eucalyptus, hypericum, etc.

A large and popularly kept species that eats Eucalyptus in the wild but can be kept on blackberry and other plants as well. Females are very thick-bodied so cannot fly but males have fully formed wings and are able to glide for short distances.
