Thank you for looking at my photos. Could you tell me what kind of grasshopper is in my photos? He’s about 3” long and has what looks like a stinger coming out of his backside. We live in Cheyenne, WY.

Hi Daniel,
The “stinger” that resulted in the common name of Sword Bearing Conehead is actually the ovipositor of the female.  The Sword Bearing Conehead,
Neoconocephalus ensiger, is a Katydid and you can read more about it on BugGuide.
