hi everyone, I hope this is the right place to post these pics.
I have been keeping Phasmids (Stick Insects) for about 12 weeks now, I started out with 10 indian Sticks and bought some Giant Thorny and Vietnnamese Prickly's from the Kettering Bug Fest show.

I currently own:-

Indian (Carausius Morosus) x 7 (1 Nymph) (Nymphs are baby stick insects)
Vietnamese Prickly (Neohirasea Maerens) x 8
Giant Thorny (Trachyaretaon Bruekneri) x 4 (1 Nymph)
Red Winged (Phaenopharos khaoyaiensis)(4 Nymphs)

So I proudly present my little phasmid family.

These are my Giant Thorny (Trachyaretaon Bruekneri) (I have 2 females and 1 male and 1 nymph)


This is a picture of my Adult female and male (males abdomen can be seen in the bottom left of the picture).


These are my Indian (Carausius Morosus) (I have 6 and 1 nymph):-


These are my Vietnamese Prickly (Neohirasea Maerens) (I have 8 of these):-


This is one of them molting about a week ago.


My Trachyaretaon Bruekneri Nymph (baby) which hatched from some Ova (Eggs) that Sulu gave me.

great, nice to see you have started out with something thats easy to look after. What are your long term aims, as far as stick insects are concerned.

Are you wanting to go for more exotic species of stick or trail off towards things like scorpions or arachnids.
