male cricket.. ^^;
not with that big old ovipositor, i don't think so

all crickets have two cerci on the end of their butt... but i am pretty sure only females have the third longer spike in the middle. i am pretty sure it is an ovipositor that the use to lay eggs with

i have only a couple of hundred crickets and superworms. no grasshopper nor anything else... ;)

on that picture.. yes.. absolutely it seems like a spike for laying eggs of female cricket. and a male does not have such thing on the middle of its butt. but it's definitely adult cricket. i'm not sure it was a male or a female. it's just like a female on that picture.

ps: do you want to see these male crickets i feed for my centipedes? then i will upload some pictures for it.

i am sure you are right that it is a cricket. i was commenting on the sex.

i would like to see pictures. they look different from the Acheta domestica, house crickets, that i have used in the past as feeders. yours look more interesting in color :)

i have such crickets for their foods. just look at this and have fun with it. (i'm not sure this species is a local one in korea. i can buy it at any pet shop here)
