This is an arthropod I found in an apparently abandoned mongoose burrow in the Maasai Mara game reserve, Kenya:

That was the best photo I could get of it. From what I could tell, it had six legs and very long antennae, so I'm guessing it's an insect. It was vaguely orthopteran-like and had striped/banded legs with a dark dorsal side.

Does anyone have any idea what this could be? Even if the species can't be discerned, I'd appreciate knowing what clade this critter belongs to.
