Hello,
I saw this on my walk home from work on October 25, 2010. Specifically, it was crawling along the sidewalk in a residential area behind a poultry processing plant and close to the train tracks. The pen I added for scale is 14 cm long.
Thanks for your help!

Mole Cricket from Hungary

Hi Franny,
The Mole Cricket which is pictured in your photograph and the Toe-Biter are probably two of the most frequent identification requests we receive.  If our memory serves us correctly, we have received requests for the identification of the Mole Cricket from every continent but Antarctica.

    Mole cricket: edible

    Hello Daniel and Franny,

    Mole crickets are particularly popular in Thailand and neighboring countries in Southeast Asia; they’re consumed in other parts of the world too.
    I’ve had them and they’re definitely tasty.

    Best,
    Dave
