Spiny Leaf Insects (Extatosoma tiaratum) are probably the easiest and one of the most rewarding pets for home or a classroom:
  • They are large and look exotic but are completely harmless,
  • They are quiet,
  • They have interesting behavior,
  • They can be easily handled,
  • They will forgive you if you forget to give it food or water but not for too long…
  • Females live for up to 18 months, and males up to 8 months,
  • Females don’t need males to reproduce, but of course males are fun and they can take short flights, if released in the air on a warm day.
  • You can play with their surroundings and change their colour by introducing a bright light source and light coloured surroundings.
In short, Spiny Leaf Insects are a perfect gateway pet. If they die in your care, don’t go out and get yourself a cat or even a gold fish, they are far more work then a Spiny.
Here we provide you with everything you need to start enjoying your new pets straight away. You add Eucalyptus leaves and water in your mist bottles.
