Corn Cricket

The Corn Cricket (Afrikaans name is Koringcriek) is found mainly in the South Western region of South Africa, moving from the fynbos to the succulent vegetation of the region. These crickets will eat each other when deprived of protein and salt in their diets; as other crickets are a good source of these nutrients.

Adults occur from September to June with the female laying about 14 very large eggs. We saw this one in the West Coast National Park
