Hey, that's apparently Linda's Tree Frog, Hyloscirtus lindae! :)

Absolutely, and quite an obscure one, too! :) It's figured in the "Terrarien-Atlas" vol. 2 by Hans-Joachim Herrmann but the distinctive fingertips were almost invisible in the photo that was in that book so I still had a hard time finding it out.

Hmm, I'll try a photo that I took myself this time...

Okay, some hints may be necessary here - it's not an adult, it is a synanthrope (photo was taken in our kitchen) but it is not a pest. It has been introduced to North America so it has a holarctic distribution. ;D

This one took me quite a bit of searching, but I think I've finally got it.  Is it a Masked Hunter, Reduvius personatus?

Yes, it's one of the most beautiful diploglossids. But this is an easy one (I guess it's too popular?), it's Kuhl's Galliwasp, Diploglossus monotropis. :)

Sorry, but I believe I've already solved it. I just didn't find a proper new one - until now:


Brings back memories, I've been breeding these somewhere between 1995 and 1997. Tiny but really nice and less cannibalistic than many other species.

Not exactly - same family, though! ;)

I think this is incorrect, but is it Acanthops parafalcata?

No, not Acanthops, sorry. The key to identifying it are the raptorial legs of this one with the colourful and greatly enlarged femur. :)
