Hey guys. Caught this little bugger while in arizona last week. So far he/she is in a small setup with a tube for hydration, and a small stick. As far as eating goes, she has killed a termite but i havent witnessed any eating.

Roughly 7mm in length.

That's a real nice find. Looked like in the video he was just about to get out. You wouldn't want to lose that find. Wink

Nice little critter, unfortunately they are infamous for doing extremely poorly in captivity, there are very few people who have ever had any success with them. Hope yours does well for you! Smile

Considering i found just as many dead as i did alive while i was looking around, i think there success rate in general might be crappy. Im gonna have to figure out a better way to open his lid. Seems as though the shaking or vibrations really startle him, and i think that may be contributing to him not eating.

I have also heard that people have low success rates with them as well. Too bad since they are so interesting to observe.

Lots of ventilation with a fan blowing in some extra air help. Make sure there are a couple nice hides it can burrow under because they really like having shelter. Could be one of the smaller Erembates.

I'm not sure what happened. I watched her kill and eat termites, and a cricket. After that, nothing. I'm not sure what did it, but i found her dead =(
