Nancy!
You're here! Thank you for the ID. I found this guy at a park between our ongoing severe storm systems and brought him home. I'm not sure how he's doing - has been completely still for five days on his plant. He's definitely alive (moves antennae and legs when I am near), but not eating or moving around.

At any rate, he's in a cage with small potted plants, cricket powder, good humidity, and light misting.
