    Hi, i've just purchased 4 Parapachymorpha zomproi nymphs (Thai stick insects). I have being doing all the research I can to make their existence as comfortable as possible. Unfortunately, some say that they only eat bramble and others say bramble, oak, rose, privet etc. What can I feed them to ensure they grow to healthy egg laying adults.

    PLEASE HELP!!!

    My baby stick insect, 12 days old is dying. She has not eaten since she was born. she was fine last night but now she is incredibly weak and keeps curling her legs in. She keeps falling over.
    I have tried to place food under her mouth and also water but no go.
    Can anyone please help me as i dont want to lose her.
    I know its most probably inevitable that she will die very shortly but the more i do, the better the outcome may be.

    Most baby Indian stick insects live, but some do die even though they have food and water. You've done the right thing giving it some water on the privet leaf or bramble leaf. But it sounds as though it's not going to make it; it's not you fault, you've done everything you could.

    Hello,
    I live in Lancashire outside Ramsbottom, (15 mins drive from Manchester). I would like to keep stick insects and saw your message. Are they easy to keep, I have a tank I used to keep clownfish and shrimps in, 60 litre starter tank with lights and heater if necessary, I would happily take some off your hands if you think they're suitable pets for me and my children. I don't drive ,but I could get a lift to pick them up next month, unless you're in a rush to rehome and travel in this direction often anyway. Have a think about it, I'm going to research them, then I can give you my phone number. Could do a swop if you like, as me and my partner are artists.
    thanks,
    Rachel.

    Hello again,
    I've done my research now and think they'd make great pets for the children. I'd love to take some off you. How do I get in touch with you now, do I post my phone number on this site or not.
    Look forward to hearing from you.
    Rachel.
