Jerusalem Cricket (Stenopelmatus Fuscus) Called Child Of The Earth - Very Rare

Product Description

You will receive:

One Jerusalem Cricket.  Size will be about 1" to 1.5"

Plus coconut fiber and leaves.

 

One of the most misunderstood insects, this strange looking creature has been called many names during its presence in North America and Mexico. 

Early Native Americans referred to the Jerusalem Cricket as the Old Bald-Headed Man or the Red Skull because of its uncanny humanoid head. 

Today these insects are found along the west coast of the US and Mexico.

Though sightings of the Jerusalem Cricket are actually quite rare, once spotted believe me, they are hard to forget. 

Although they bear the name of cricket, these insects are actually in a different family altogether. 

Unlike other crickets, the Jerusalem is wingless and has an abnormally large head that many believe resembles a human head. 

However, despite its alien look, the black and tan banded insect is actually not harmful or poisonous.

An adult Jerusalem Cricket will reach 2 inches in length (30-50mm). 

The large head of the Jerusalem Cricket is its most distinguishing feature because it is so disproportional to the rest of its body. 

The humanoid head of the Jerusalem is superbly adapted to support the equally large jaws that give the Jerusalem its digging power. 

The powerful jaws and mandibles not only allow the Jerusalem Cricket to burrow deep into the earth, but also strip off roots and tubules for a constant food source. 

Given the chance, the Jerusalem will consume other insects. 

Generally these insects have an orange and black banded body with a tanned head and under abdomen though shades can vary. 

Carrying no poison, the Jerusalem is not lethal in any way.

Jerusalem crickets usually make their high-pitched sound to ward off predators. 

This sound can sometimes be confused for a scream.

Jerusalem crickets do well in captivity. 

Because of their cannibalistic tendencies they must kept in separate habitats. 

The containers must be kept cool since temperatures exceeding 70 ºF may not only be harmful to Jerusalem Cricketss, but also encourages the development of mites.  

Humidity is critical. The substrate must be kept moist, but not wet, at all times.

Fresh slices of apple or potato offered every 7-10 days will not only provide your animals with nutrition, but also help maintain humidity. 

Add washed romaine lettuce and old-fashioned oatmeal. Jerusalem crickets will also eat bread, grass roots and a variety of vegetables. 

Supplement their weekly feedings with bits of raw meat or soft-bodied insects such as greater wax moth larvae (Galleria melonella). 

Remove uneaten food items after a few days to prevent the growth of potentially harmful molds.
