Last weekend, while me and my family were at Woodhaven Lakes(mostly fixing up our property a bit) we had a bit of time to go down to the lake where I had seen a good number of Gelastocoris oculatus( Big-eyed Toad Bugs.) Well, I was able to find nine of these cool little guys and brought them back with me to try an keep and hopefully breed.
I made them up an enclosure with a medium-sized deli cup as the water dish and some netting to climb back out of the water dish. I am using a very moist mix of coconut fiber, course sand, and fine-grained sand as the substrate.
Here's some pictures of these guys and their enclosure!

Hope you guys enjoyed, and I'll see you all on my next post!
