What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

What kind is this?
Took this picture in Real County and don’t know what kind of grasshopper it is , It
was very long about 4 inches.
Thanks,
Bev

Hi Bev,
This is a Greater Arid Land Predaceous Katydid, Neobarrettia spinosa, a female recognizeable by her stingerlike ovipositor. There is a dramatic account of them on BugGuide.
