jumping bristletail fresh after molt

feeling much better now that they have lichen to graze on, but you gotta keep it fresh or they get sick! need humidity but also air flow.
@RezonantVoid They belong to order Archaeognatha, so a totally different order from Zygentoma (silverfish / firebrats). In Newfoundland I think they are mostly found near salt water. We only have one species I believe, so I don't know how other members of the order behave. I'm pretty sure these guys can jump, unlike silverfish.
