Found this in the garage at our home in Julian CA….lived here 10 years and never seen this before……acts like a grasshopper the way it jumps

Dragon Lubber Grasshopper

Hi Sam,
We quickly identified your grasshopper on BugGuide as a Dragon Lubber in the genus
Dracotettix, a small group of species endemic to California.  Sadly, your photo does not show the crest which would be more visible from the side.
