This listing is for 5 EGGS, of a beginner-friendly species of spiny stick insect. This species is well-known for its unique egg-laying behaviour, where females dig a hole in the substrate using their front legs, then do a hand-stand before dropping an egg down their backs, then catching it with their antennae before burying it in the substrate.

These are CAPTIVE BRED in my collection, with this stock originating from Malaysia, Asia. The food plants for this species are bramble, raspberry, oak, beech, etc.
