A pair of Walking Leaf Mimic insects in a handmade wooden frame mounted on high-quality acid-free conservation board. The Latin and common names are printed underneath the specimen.


Leaf insects are camouflaged (using mimicry) to take on the appearance of leaves. They do this so accurately that predators often are not able to distinguish them from real leaves. In some species the edge of the leaf insect's body even has the appearance of bite marks. To further confuse predators, when the leaf insect walks, it rocks back and forth, to mimic a real leaf being blown by the wind.


It reaches 8 - 10 centimetres (2 - 4 in).

All our frames are made to order, this handmade process means your order will take several days for us to prepare. Our current production time is around 7 to 8 working days but larger specimens can take a few days longer due to the time it takes the specimen to dry. If you are ordering for presents, birthdays, anniversaries and weddings, please order well in advance.

All of our frames are carefully wrapped and boxed before shipping out once they are ready. Items that we advise are in stock still need to be prepared and made for you.

If you are in a rush, frames can be shipped on a quicker delivery service once they are ready. We can ship on an overnight service for example but you will need to email us, so we can advise when your order will be ready.

You will receive an email once your order is dispatched containing a tracking number.
