Katydid

Tettigoniidae

Description:

Katydids are also known as Long-eared grasshoppers. They are actually more related to the cricket then the grasshopper. Some Katydids eat leaves, flowers, bark, and seeds. Others eat insects, snails, and even lizards and snakes. Large Katydids can have a painful pinch or bite if held, but it usually doesn't break the skin.

Habitat:

They are found throughout the world, habitats ranging from tropical to temperate or arid environments.

Notes:

I found a lot of these in the morning out on the driveway. I put them back in the trees and was in "aww" at how they blended in so perfectly.
