|It's a jungle out there!|
I identified the grasshopper with the help of this website.
Lubber grasshoppers (Romalea microptera) are large, heavily sclerotized insects with relatively unspecialized bodies. Like all members of the order Orthoptera, they are herbivores. Their mouthparts are adapted for biting and chewing, and they have large powerful hind legs used for jumping. As adults, lubber grasshoppers have short wings that are incapable of flight. The wings are used to signal receptivity during courtship.
