    Can Anyone Identify This Bug?

    I found it in the bathroom in the basement of my house. I tried using a guide online to no avail.











    Any help at all is appreciated.

    Nah, the only bugs I catch and feed to anything are ants in the house go to my nep. I'm debating putting my nep outside under the translucent table on the deck, so it can get more bugs, but I'm afraid it might fry the leaves. My nep lives in a south-facing glass block window in my house now.

    That is an unusual looking cricket. Looks like it grew in a gravity rich environment such as Jupiter. It's so squat and stubby! But I hate crickets so into a pitcher it would go anyway.

    Looks like it's trying to confuse the back and the front so predators won't be able to tell which end they're attacking!
