This listing is for 5 EGGS, of a legendary species of stick insect that was the un-obtainable, holy grail for every stick insect enthusiast for the past few decades. Recently collected in Popondetta (city in Papua New Guinea) in 2021 and distributed to breeders in 2022/2023, this species is quickly becoming established and a favourite in European cultures.

Females of this species are gigantic, reaching a whopping 18cm from head to tail. Males are a little shorter in length, but make up for it with impressive +1cm spines on their hind-legs.

These are CAPTIVE BRED, with this stock originating from Popondetta, Papua New Guinea. The food plants for this species are bramble, raspberry, oak, beech, etc.
