GIANT stick insect mounted on a parchment background. This species has some of the world's longest stick insects. The male stick insect has longer antennae than the female. They are excellent at camouflage and are difficult to spot on trees and bushes. They feed on multiple food plants ranging from Guava, Eucalyptus and Bramble. Mating can last up to 2 days (crazy right!!!) and females lay small eggs after 3-4 weeks.
Behind your critter is a Westwood, J. O. (John Obadiah), 1805-1893 reproduction print from his book - Westwood's cabinet of oriental entomology.
The cabinet of oriental entomology: being a selection of some of the rarer and more beautiful species of insects, natives of India and the adjacent islands, the greater portion of which are now for the first time described and figured
Available in black 11X14 inch frame.
A great addition to any cabinet of curiosities or classroom educational tool!
The critter pictured is an example of what you will be receiving. No worries, they are all about the same and super lovely.
