Things grow bigger in the Amazon! This giant bush katydid is a great example. It is also known as the green crested katydid or the saddleback katydid because of the large "saddle-like" area right behind the head. Notice also it's excellent leaf mimic camouflage.
Best chance to see things like this is on a night hike or near a light source.
