Snake's venom and its effects.

   Phaenopharos khaoyalensis


Stick Bug (Phaenopharos khaoyalensis, ???) (PSG-215)

They originate from Thailand. They have to be kept at 20- 25°C. Ova takes 5- 6 month to hatch. Ova is fairly hardy, so room temperature (15- 24°C), 30- 40% humidity should be fine. They are fairly hard to handle, as they tend to walk right off your hand. Although as nymphs, they tend to be more careful when walking. They have a great adaptation towards over heating. They will spit out some of the fluids onto a surface and drink it back up, to cool them selves internally. If this is observed, immediately decrease the temperature as they are uncomfortable! The ova hatch rate is very high, usually 90-95%, thus keeping the population in control is very important since each female will lay 300- 400 ova. Ova can be disposed of in two ways: 1st: frozen for 48 hours prior to throwing it out. 2nd: microwave it for 15- 25 seconds, depending on your microwave.

Females: get 14cm long. When threatened, will open their brachypterous red wings and release the smell which smells very similar to rotten meat.

Males: are not known in this specie.

Diet: Bramble, Red/ Yellow Salmon Berry, Privit.
