Ferocious Water Bug


2 in stock


The Ferocious Water Bug, Abedus herberti, is an awesome predatory insect that feeds on live prey like crickets or roaches which can be submerged via forceps near the insect (unless you have aquatic prey). It is a slightly smaller version of a giant water bug, AKA toebiter. They are sort of an aquatic version of a praying mantis.

These live in freshwater creeks or ponds, etc. Because they breathe air through their abdomens, water quality isn’t the same issue with them as it is with fish, etc. Provide a small bit of floating material in the tank for them to hold onto.

Currently available as small to medium nymphs, unsexed. Exact age and remaining life span are unknown. Overnight shipping only, please.
