117 day old Cricket - Acheta domesticus - Male
Perry County, Pennsylvania, USA
Size: 21 mm
Now approximately 4 months old and 21 mm in length, he is now a full adult. Among the group of 7 siblings, there are 2 adults thus far. More should follow soon, and I plan to release them into the wild soon. They grow up so fast! ; )
