Perhaps a first time offering of an earwig species, what better way to leap into an exciting new facet of insect keeping than with these monsters! Though the giant arcane earwig does not rival the titanic size of the recently extinct Saint Helena earwig, it does dwarf all typically encountered species. Pre-killed insects are vital to breeding these voracious insects, though they are not quick to cannibalize when food is scarce. Females construct circular galleries deep in the substrate, frequently against the side of the enclosure. Watching the mother earwig delicately lay, groom, and protect her eggs and young is a rewarding experience certainly worthy of admiration and appreciation!
