Hi, I got some sungaya Inexpectata today from bugfest I don't know a lot about their care. I have found out that they can eat bramble, ivy and oak, is this right? Also they need to be kept humid. I have Eco earth to use as a substrate, is this ok for them. Does anyone have a good care sheet for them? I can't find any that have more than five lines of writing in

Thanks for any replies

PSG195 Sungaya inexpectata

Common name: Sunny S/I

Subfamily: Obriminae

Origin: Philippines

Adult size: Females: 80mm

Food plants: Bramble

Description: Grey to brown insect. They have a small ‘crown’ on the top of their head. They have lots of very small, blunt spines, (more bumps) all over the body. Yellow eyes. Legs are very slender, and look as though they won’t support body. Eggs are black, and ornate looking.

Comment: Very good for the beginner. These are all female and reproduce by parthenogenesis. Keep nice and humid. Provide females with a place to lay ova, i.e. a pot of peat or similar. These take about 4-6 months to hatch. A real easy, easy one!
