Leaf and Stick Insects
Leaf and Stick insects are masters of camouflage. Herbivorous by nature, Australia touts over 100 species of these amazing animals. Some are long and twig-like, some knobbly and others look just like leaves. A number of these insects are now available as pets.
Minimum loan period is 1 week, maximum loan period is 3 weeks. Each loan animal is provided with food for the loan period, tank and a “How to Keep” sheet.
