Gum-leaf Katydid

Torbia Viridissima

Description:

A six-legged creature with bulbous yellow eyes on a small head. Wings strongly resemble gum leaves. Long, thin legs with small hook-like feet.

Notes:

A very friendly, curious creature! Seems to have a personality and enjoys being held. Eyes seem to move and watch as the katydid is moved around on the back of a hand.
