Giant grasshoppers of Japan

This morning, on my way to work, I encountered this little guy:


Holy crap! It’s huge!

It was a grasshopper, and boy was it ever big.  It was about 4 or 5 cm long!  I’d never seen a grasshopper that big before.  I’ve mentioned before that Japan has a lot of large, creepy animals.  I just hope I don’t run into a Huntsman spider.

Anyway, Exploring Gifu will be coming tomorrow night.
