In the tropics, things grow bigger

October 16, 2010

Whoa. Look at the size of this grasshopper katydid.

I’m not sure if the garden hose is enough of a scale reference. His body is as big as my thumb. Not your thumb, my giganto thumb. I found this guy on the back patio while I was working on a very exciting new clothesline project that I will post photos of soon. He was a real ham, he loved getting his picture taken.

    That’s a katydid, not a grasshopper.

      Oops. You’re right, thanks!
