These dramatic looking stick insects come from a very small area in Peru. They were endangered but are now bred world-wide as a very handsome pet. They can run very fast and I tend to only let second time Frazooers handle them! They have a beautiful black velvety bloom on their bodies, crazy yellow eyes and their feet are surprisingly soft.
Fascinating fact: this species have tiny bright red wings that they flick up and display when they are on the move. This may startle a potential predator and give them time to run away...
