Welcome to the world of phasmids!

Phasmids belong to the most striking and largest invertebrates of our world. They inhabit our planet since the age of the dinosaurs. Almost all species resemble parts of plants like twigs and leaves, and all species feed on plants. The size ranges between 17 mm (Miniphasma prima) and 440 mm (Phobaeticus chani). About 200 species are fascinating people as pets.
