Going REALLY buggy
My husband found a HUGE 6" thing in some packing material in his shop. We were able to carry it outside for a Photo shoot before letting it go. It is a greater Arid-land katydid, AKA Red Eyed Devil. They live Central texas through the big bend., lower New mexico and to Tucson area. Mostly in Texas. I was thinking of offing him because I was afraid he would be the first of many. Katydid can eat like crazy but Dang, I never seen anything like him and she (and she is a she) is gorgeous in an alien kind of way. On researching what this was I found that this is a predacious katydid so I am really glad I was not quick to condemn it out of ignorance.
Who designs these things and I want that job!
