Jumping Bristletails are tiny insects that have a hunched back like shrimp, an abdomen like a Silverfish and three 'tails' at the tip of the abdomen. They are able to jump.
These small insects are found on the ground under rocks, stones, logs, debris, leaves and in caves. They prefer moist areas. Their scales are slightly reflective and may appear to be a coppery metallic color under the light.
