Out of stock


A medium-sized species found on the ground in leaf litter in semi-arid regions of South Australia. They move slowly to stalk prey and once captured digestive enzymes are injected into the prey. These enzymes break the flesh down into liquid which can be then be absorbed by the assassin through the straw-like rostrum. They are very timid however if hurt they can deliver a painful bite.
