Hello everyone and thanks for visiting our website!
Merry Christmas and the Happy New Year!:)
Christmas is very busy time for everyone and for delivery services as well, so to avoid any unexpected (or, to be honest, expected) delays of delivery of your orders we will ship them after this postal chaos will be returned into usual borders (i.e after 1st January).
We consider it as better option to ensure you will get animals you purchased safely.
Some of orders can be delivered earlier in case you are living in Co. Cork or Co. Limerick or if we will be able to find an occasion to bring it to you using help of friends & colleagues.
If you will have anything to discuss with us – feel free to contact us!
From time to time we will post updates on what we are offering on our web store on this page, but you are always welcome to post everything related to this subject (i.e. pictures of your animals, questions, keeping advices etc)!
Did you ever suspected that we have a Stick Insect species in Ireland? No?
But we have!:)
Of course, this is an invasive species, so called Unarmed Stick Insect (Acanthoxyla inermis) originated from New Zealand and arrived to Ireland with plants import about century ago. But this is really interesting fact!
Wild population reported for Kenmare Bay area (County Kerry), so perhaps this is worth checking it out on next occasion.
Also this is an important reminder for everyone involved to keeping of exotic animals – be very careful with animals you breed, never let them escape to the wild (and never trow away any eggs etc!). Many species may seem harmless, but in long term perspective they may cause unpredictable and critical damage to local ecosystem.
So the female you know from one of previous posts laid its first ootheca. In comparison to African Mantis (S. lineola) ooth this is really tiny. So small species means small ooths:)
