What’s this Hopper?
This chap was spotted in Johannesburg, South Africa. He’s approx 2.5 inches in length… Please excuse the pic quality…

Hi Chris,
This is one of the Lubber Grasshoppers, but we don’t know the South African species. According to Eric Eaton: “The “lubber” from Africa is something in the family of bush locusts, Pyrgomorphidae. Might be fairly easy to ID from there since most species are very colorful. “

    Hi, do you have a pic of the “renosterbos-springkaan (hekka eenderm)”? We would really like to see how it looks.
