Not my critter but check out the awesome photo set here:
They have such an amusing Dr. Seuss creature face. Like a living claymation figures!
I wish I had a place to acquire some from inside the US - they get 8" in size.

I thought about this goofy little critter all day at work!
I need to figure out how to get an insect zoo setup so I can get a permit to import all the arthropods of my dreams. MN doesn't have anything more exotic than a tank full of madagascar hissers at the real zoo so how hard could it be to get a grant and setup the MN Insectarium? Anybody here know anything about founding an institution?
The place would of course have to feature insect eating plants as well, I mean come on! LOL
Swords, what you need to do is find people here in the US who work with grasshoppers/katydids anyways and see if they can help you. I had to help out a buddy a while ago locating some tropical katydids that bred year round rather than seasonally and there are some strange grasshopper people out there let me tell you.

Speaking of Katydids a guy on the tarantulas.us forum just posted pics of a Katydid eating a lizard like a mantis would:
