Description

Size/Age:

Diapherodes gigantea, commonly known as the Green Bean Stick Insect, is a beautiful member of the phasmid family, renowned for its vibrant green camouflage that enables it to seamlessly blend into its natural surroundings. Hailing from the Caribbean, primarily islands like Grenada and Saint Vincent, this stick insect stands out due to its impressive size and vibrant green hue. The Green Bean Stick Insect boasts a slender, elongated body structure reminiscent of a twig or leaf stem, a trait shared by many stick insects. Their bright green coloration further helps them mimic foliage, rendering them almost invisible among the leaves. Adult females can be especially large, with some reaching lengths of up to 13 cm or more, while males tend to be somewhat smaller. Primarily herbivorous, Diapherodes gigantea feeds on a variety of plant leaves. In captivity, they often consume common plants such as bramble, ivy, and privet.This stick insect species is capable of parthenogenesis, a form of asexual reproduction, allowing females to produce offspring without mating. However, when males are available, sexual reproduction can occur, leading to a more diverse gene pool.

We pride ourselves on our attention to detail- it’s a priority that your critters are safe & snugly packed.

Ordering pets online can be nerve-wracking, we get it. Our 7-Day live guarantee is our way to ease nerves over the purchasing process.

We’re confident in the quality husbandry, shipping, and packaging of our livestock. On the rare occasion an animal arrives in poor condition, we will provide credit for the cost of that animal. If all animals in the shipment arrive in poor condition, we will also provide credit for the postage.

We try to make it as easy as possible to help any unwell critters, and ensure you can get your money back. There are a couple of steps to go through before a refund can be issued.

If you’ve received an unwell animal in the mail:

1. If it is safe to do so, (your pet is not medically significant or harmful) please remove the animal from its transport container, ideally onto your hand. We ask this as invertebrates, particularly insects, are experts at ‘playing dead’.

2. To provide you with the best advice going forward and to confirm the condition of your pet, we kindly request a short video of the animal in question before your refund can be processed. This can be uploaded on our ‘live guarantee refunds form’, or you can email it straight to us.

3. We typically respond within 24 hours, but please allow 1-3 working days for a response. Once it’s confirmed that you are eligible for a refund, we’ll get process the credit to your account.

We’ll need this information to reach us within 7 days after you’ve received your pet. We cannot provide any live guarantee to animals that have been refused, returned, or not collected.
