Locust ?
Any idea what this might be ? It was photographed in Singapore on a 9th floor apartment. I suspect it may be a locust !

Hi FL,
Not being familiar with Asian insects, we can tell you it is a member of the Short-Horned Grasshopper Family Acrididae. This includes the Locusts, Lubber Grasshoppers and Bird Grasshoppers. We are not inclined to believe this is one of the swarming locusts and will say so with confidence.
