    Hi,

    I have some leaf insects, one of them is losing mobility and keeps falling upside down. It is missing 2 legs and is smaller than the other 3.
    The tank is massive, i wash all the bramble i collect incase of toxins...
    has anyone else had this before in any leaf or stick insect? I just want to make sure its nothing i am doing wrong that is causing this?
    I work with inverts and reptiles but research on these are is few and far between im struggling to find any help!

    Thanks Becci :)

    Make sure that the cage that they are being kept in has mesh, this is very easy to grip onto but if it is loosing that many legs and the rest are smaller then that is the most obvious reason, probably wont hurt them though.
