Carnivorous mole cricket!

I found a mole cricket in the parking lot of a hotel that's not even 2 city blocks from the beach. I've never seen one of these before, only heard them. Pretty sure it's Scapteriscus borellii? If I'm right, it's carnivorous, which is really cool. It was really active and a lot faster than I thought it would be, and kinda reminded me of a spider. Seemed to be very keenly investigating the container I trapped it in. I moved it into the dirt. Absolutely adorable to watch it look around! If they didn't need live prey, I'd keep it as a pet.
