The female and male are quite different in appearance. Females can grow up to 15cm long. Males are smaller and can flutter short distances, the female is flightless. Spiny Leaf Stick Insects feed mainly on eucalyptus (gum) leaves. They require an enclosure of minimum size 35cm tall x 25cm x 30cm and room temperature of 16 to 28 deg C.
