Another one of my favorites. Easy to care for, voracious eaters, and crazy cool looking.  Size L2 to L3 nymphs are eating fruit flies or house flies.  The larger sexed pairs are eating house or blue bottle flies.  This species cannot climb smooths surfaces such as plastic and glass and requires higher heat (at least 85F).  Netting enclosures are recommended for larger nymphs.
