Introduction to Stick-insects.

The picture you see below, shows the proper names of the body parts of the Stick Bug.

Insects have been around for some 325 million years! It is estimated that there are over 3000 species of Phasmids, 30 of which live in the United States 10 of which in North America, about 150 species in Australia. The name " phasmid " came from the Greek phasma meaning " appearance "or" phantom ", characterizing their capacity to be merged with their life place (imitation by homotypy and homochromy). Phasmids are a group of insects related to Orthoptera (grasshoppers, locusts, crickets), Mantids and Cockroaches. All phasmids are phytophagous, meaning that they eat only plant matter (specifically leaves, though some species will also nibble on flowers and even the bark). Stick insects are fun and easy to raise for kids as well as experienced breeders. Phasmids come in all shapes from stick like to leaf like, sizes ranging from as small as 3cm long to as big as 55.5cm long and colors (my favorite ones are milky white, green, yellow and red). They are one of the easiest pets to look after, and most require minimal care.
