Default Little critter

When I was cleaning out my pin head tank today I noticed I had something that was fury and crawling similar to a caterpillar. Its black and it likes to hide. Does anyone know!

If it has reddish hairs all over it it's a dermestid beetle larvae.

They are usually shipped with crickets as they will eat crickets that die. They are not harmful.

I would leave them in with the crickets, it will cut down on the smell, but I wouldn't feed them to my frogs, the hairs my be an irritance to them.
