This huge Katydid species (Siliquofera Grandis) is one of the largest and most impressive insect species in the world yet are easy to keep. Unlike many others these do not make much noise at all which makes them great pets. They are fascinating to watch and handle and have some really interesting behaviours.

Watch the videos with the sound turned up - some have information about their care. But really they're pretty easy to look after we just like to get it perfect you don't need huge elaborate set ups like ours.

One thing we really love about them is that they can learn to be tame, they start of as jumpy little things but gradually they learn you're no threat and can be hand fed!

We suggest you choose Royal Mail tracked 24 on check out, and make sure you are in to receive them on Wednesday. We post on Tuesday mornings. They will each be in their own small pot, within a larger postal box.

With a box of 6 very young ones there is only 1/32 a chance they will ALL be the same sex. We can't sex them when they are really young and both sexes are lovely anyway.

They grow up pretty quickly 3-4 months but then live a long time as adults - how great is that!

Keep them warm (22-26) and quite humid (70-85%) and don't over crowd them 

Bramble and oak and cut organic apples make up most of their diet for us with added fish flakes on the apple

sometimes we add an extra one for free to the box of 6 in case of mishaps on the journey - we'll assume that's fine unless told otherwise
