Holey Toledo – Giant Grasshopper   Leave a comment

So my brother-in-law thought it would be cute to surprise me with this new and not so little friend, leaving it on our back patio for me.  I ran for cover when he first alighted, then ran for the camera once he sat still.  He was almost 6 inches long, and so big his neck looks like it belongs on a lobster:

No shortage of natural surprises here in El Salvador.  Seeing is believing.   See more at the Wonderful World of Insects in El Salvador Photo Gallery.
