Cave Crickets

Also commonly known as camel crickets or spider crickets, this species can be found in caves, as well as damp, cool areas underneath damp leaves, stones and rotting logs.

Cave crickets are light to dark brown in colour, often spotted with lighter or darker areas. Adults can grow to between 13 to 33 mm.

They have large hind legs and a lengthy set of antennae that helps them navigate dark environments.

Unlike regular crickets, cave crickets do not have wings, but instead use their longer legs to jump extremely long distances.
