House cricket

Life

Acheta domesticus, commonly called the house cricket, is a cricket most likely native to Southwestern Asia, but has spread worldwide.[2] They are commercially bred as food for pets such as amphibians, arthropods, birds, and reptiles,[3] but can be kept as pets themselves, as has been the case in China and Japan.[4]

Description

The house cricket is typically grey or brown in color, growing to 16–21 millimetres (0.63–0.83 in) in length. Males and females look similar, but females will have an ovipositor emerging from the rear, around 12 millimetres (0.47 in) long. On females, the cerci are also more prominent.[5]
