The creature I made a photo of “walked” in the garden of the Ghostmountain Lodge in Mkuze, when I was there on December the 24th last year. I would love to know the name of it. Many thanks in advance

We are happy you have identified your Slant Faced Grasshopper. Based on the image posted to Know Your Insects, we agree with at least the genus. We will attempt additional research. BioDiversity India does not list South Africa as part of the global range of the species. Most observations on iSpot are only identified to the genus level and those that are identified to the species are Acrida acuminata, called the Common Stick Grasshopper on iSpot.
