Northern Walking Stick
(Diapheromera femorata)
by Jon Fouskaris

ADULT FEMALE

The Northern Walking Stick is one of the only species of stick insect that is legal to sell, buy, and keep in the United States. It is one of the most common species of walking stick in the United States! Northern Walking Sticks have, in my opinion, the best camouflage out of all living creatures. This stick insect looks just like a typical branch, hence it's name. If the tank that you have is large enough, and you have a plant in there, you may not find your stick insect for a while. Northern Walking Sticks prove to be difficult to keep alive in captivity due to their diet. It's not that they are fragile and non-adaptive in captivity, but for most people, finding leaves from different plants and trees year-round is hard. If you can take care of a Northern Walking Stick, then it will probably live to be about one year old in captivity. The Northern Walking Stick is an interesting, legal, and relatively inexpensive stick insect that may become one of your favorite insect pets.
