Fiery Searcher


2 in stock


The fiery searcher is also called a green caterpiller hunter, Calosoma scrutator. Offered as an adult and this is one of our top pet bug recommendations. These beetles are large and active. In addition to small, soft-bodied prey in the natural diet they will scavenge pre-killed prey (like crickets) in captivity. Cut in half mealworms are also taken. They seem to show an interest in fruits, though perhaps just in sucking out moisture. They also seem to nibble on dog/cat/fish foods.

They are hardy, long-lived and easy to care for although we never know remaining life span. They should be offered a slightly moist substrate and like to have something like a piece of bark to hide under.
