I caught a adult male Tenodera sinensis or aridifolia specimen about 2 weeks ago. It is being kept in a large critter keeper. It is about 4 inches long, I estimate. it is on a cricket (and maybe superworm) diet.  s!ApAPQW_OzhPVjyG-LfTTa4-mR8IG

Can't see the pic either Tenodera sinensis are actually quite rare. I have picture of one I caught from 2013.

Very similar to some we have here in South Australia.

Is that pic of a female or male? Mine is a male. I have a Youtube video of it.

I caught it in my neighbor's yard. It seems to be pretty healthy, but it is probably old as they aren't as good climbers and fall more often as they get older (mine falls off the ceiling of its cage a lot).
