    I think you'll find they are super easy.

    Cute assassins! I always worry about cannibalism with them, nice to hear it's not very prevalent.

    Haha I've been paranoid about cannibalism too lol, luckily it seems like they are very hesitant to turn on each other! :)

    I love how spiky they are! This is one of my favorite assassin species, only beaten out by Pselliopus cinctus.

    Yeah, I love all the spikes on them, I really can't wait to see the adults in person! :D P.cinctus are pretty cool too, wonder if they can easily be bred in captivity or not?

    Hopefully you'll get the chance to obtain these one day, they are awesome!

    I'm waiting for when this south american Zelurus species enters the hobby. It's a tarantula hawk mimic!

    I want to try at some point, but I can't easily acquire any, since they aren't sold on the net (as far as I can tell), and I live on the wrong side of the US.
    I hadn't seen that one before, but that's amazing.

    I've seen several pictures of that species before, they are so cool! The nymphs apparently cover themselves in debris like the common "Masked Hunter" assassin bugs. :) I really hope they make their way into culture at one point...

    Maybe you can try asking hobbyists that live in states that P.cinctus can be found in if they'll collect any for you? Like @Salmonsaladsandwich for example! :p

    I don't have any spare money for bugs right now, I'd ask on the Classifieds otherwise. :/

    Aww, sorry to hear that, I know what that's like for sure! Hope you can get some one day, they look like neat little assassins! :)

    Thanks, I appreciate it. I'm a sucker for any bug with black and white striping, so they were an instant hit for me, especially since I love true bugs.

    I see Pselliopus pretty often, but not quite often enough that I could make a promise to collect them in any quantity.

    Planning on buying a few, idk what species the pet store got, but assassins are the cutest creatures alive IMO. CAN'T WAIT TO GET SOME BOI.
