How big? I'm asking, bacause big ones are kept in terrariums worldwide, this could make a perfect pet bug if it is quite big.

tropical area has large diversify of this family. It looks like subfamily Harpactorinae maybe somewhere around Castolus complex? but you'll have to ask people that know your fauna.
