An amazing pet and very striking as it looks a lot like a leaf.

A very curious thing is that when the wind blows, they move pretending to be leaves just like the rest of the tree to go unnoticed and usually take advantage to move, change places or eat. You can check this by blowing in the terrarium, they are nocturnal and diurnal so you will enjoy them at all times.

At birth they measure 1.3 cm and as adults the males will measure about 6 cm and the females about 10 cm. Its coloration can be green or yellow.

They will need a terrarium 2 times their body width and 3 times their height, with a humidity of 60-70%. They feed on brambles and rose bushes.

At birth they are nymphs (L1) and in the case of males they moult 5 times (L5) and females 6 times (L6), this takes about 6-7 months and they already become adults living up to 8 more months in the case of the females. If you have a preference for one sex, check availability.
