Insectoid

So check out the little - well not little, he's the size of my thumb - dude in the front yard this morning. Normally I'd be freaked - it's a bug, yo - but we get decent insects so rarely in The Jungle - ants, flies and roaches mostly; some spiders - and he was outside, that I was intrigued instead. At least I think it's a he. Maybe it's a she? It's brown so that would suggest female - less colorful pattern - but it's huge, relatively, so that would suggest male? Does anyone know? It was on the orange tree if that narrows it down. This is me, curious.

It's a grasshopper. Or a related like a Kattydid. Would have helped if you caught him from another angle.

Hmmm... protein-licious.
