    Cool looking assassin. I don't keep that species but I have eggs of Zelus exsanguis incubating right now.

    Ok thanks! Do I have to keep them in a dry or humid tank?

    Try to mimic the place where you caught it. :) I would keep it on peat probably.

    Those are good caresheets but the care of native assassins is slightly different. ;) Especially if they are from Canada. heh

    I'll keep mine in a hot and dry tank... I don't think the care would be different from those 2 species.

    Last time I checked Quebec wasn't a part of Africa, but whatever. :rolleyes: I'm sure it will be fine.
