A swimming cricket was one of three “new species” discovered by a TV crew filming in South America.
The “unbelievable” insect find was captured on camera along with a no-eyed harvestman and a cave catfish.

The filming was part of a new BBC/Discovery Channel/Terra Mater TV co-production called The Dark: Nature’s Nighttime World.
