Awesome!! awesome I almost had a chance to get one, but when the USDA thought I was keeping phasmids, I thought better of it.

Just don't get "scissored" by those hind legs of hers. I've seen videos of them in defense-mode.

Nah we can't keep any non-native walking stick here. I had a chance to get some too but it was early in the hobby for me and I wanted to drop the money on an Androctonus I saw there.

As Andrew said, the US won't let you keep walking sticks that aren't native to your state without lots of permits -- and then, only if you're an organization, not an individual.

Thats gash likes! over here your allowed pretty much every phasmid out there (probably cause they wouldnt survive over here.) What i dont get tho is how your allowed desert scorps from africa but theyde probably do pretty well in the south western deserts, its probly cause a lot of phasmids are parthenogenic and so would have no problem multiplying.

The USDA doesn't care about arachnids -- I've asked 'em. Works out pretty well for most of us hobbyists. awesome

why do they care so much about phasmids then? Is it about destroying crops and such?

Because they're parthenogenic, and they can feed on anything in the rose family -- which is a pretty huge family.

Wikipedia wrote:
The rose family is probably the third most economically important[citation needed] crop plant family (after the grass family and the pea family), including apples, pears, quinces, medlars, loquats, almonds, peaches, apricots, plums, cherries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and cut roses among the crop plants belonging to the family.

I think they are legal Canada. So they are a threat to the eco system?

Sort of . . . I think it's mostly post-9/11 paranoia that someone would use them as a bioterrorism weapon. Rolling Eyes
