Cave Crickets


WooFDriver and his crew took the WooFPAK on a Midnight Mushing tour of the C&O Canal Tow Path when they came across this cave. Once inside they noticed they were not alone, they were surrounded by Cave Crickets(Rhaphidophoridae)!

Cave Crickets are found in forest environments, animal burrows, cellars, under stones, in wood and of course in caves. They only look vaguely similar to the well known Field Cricket and  are from a different superfamily (Grylloidea).
