An incredible pet originally from the Philippines but raised in Spain, 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 5 cm and the females about 8 cm.

They will need a minimum terrarium 2 times their body width and 3 times 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 molt 5 times (L5) and females 6 times (L6) and they become adults living up to 7 more months in the case of females. If you have a preference for a sex, check availability.
