3 pairs of very young jungle nymphs from our approx 100 adults last generation - these will grow to be huge adults (3 males + 3 females). Now we include a free pair too in case of mishaps. Order before 8am Tuesday as we post on Tuesday mornings.

We have been selectively breeding heteropteryx dilatata for about 15 years. Raising a large number each generation we then used the biggest females and most beautiful males for the next generation. This is slowly making our jungle nymph females bigger on average and the males more likely to have beautiful markings.

most of the photos show the adults, the ones we are selling are much younger

you can sex even the youngest ones, the females have a slightly pointed tail

Feed well on bramble, oak, beech, raspberry, hawthorn - keep cut stems in jars of water but don't leave gaps to let the insects fall in
