Phasmids Need Our Help!

Phasmids are fantastic creatures of the animal kingdom

Why phasmids should be protected!

We definitely believe that phasmids should be protected because they are harmless to humans and other animals. Phasmids are not predators to anything. Unfortunately, they are only prey to other animals such as birds, snakes, lizards, possums and sugar gliders.


They are a special creature that are perfect as a pet! Especially for little children. They are great for the classroom so students can see and study their features, eating habits and life cycle.
