A handsome red-legged grasshopper (Acrididae) from Panama. Quite a lovely spectrum of dead-leaf coloration on this one.
Katydid (Tettigoniidae) from Panama. The presence of a spermatophylax on her abdomen indicates that she has recently mated. Male katydids provide their mates with "nuptial gifts," nutritious goo that they eject along with their packets of sperm to nurture not only their new mate, but their future offspring as well. This snack also helps to distract the female from eating his sperm before she is inseminated.
One of the largest grasshoppers in the world, Tropidacris cristata (Romaleidae) from Panama. This beast was close to 12 centimeters long.
