Up until now I haven't seen any random insects crawling around my viv, but I happened to see this guy crawling up a brom leaf a few minutes ago. Anyone know what it is? I haven't introduced anything new to the viv since it was built about a year ago, and I only feed ff's, springs, and isos.

Thanks!

If you see any more, get them out. Those pincers could do some real damage to a frog.

Definitely an earwig, you'll want to get them out. Look for them at night with a flashlight as that is when they are most active.

I would be more worried that there are a number of them hiding in there to eat the plants...

Cool thanks, I was wondering if that's what it was. Any idea how they generally get in? I'm surprised I haven't seen any before.

earwing, I have them out side. They can do a real number on your plants. They eat the steam of the plants. Take a damp newspaper and roll it up like a tube. They will go in at night and you can pick it up in the am. It may take a few days. Good luck
