    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.

    All bug people are buggy! LOL

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