While out cruising for upland snakes I found this very large cricket/grasshopper on the road. I think I've heard other folks call them camel crickets (Rhaphidophoridae), but was wondering if anybody could get more specific than that.
Found in Lafayette County, Florida.
I also saw this flat southern toad moving across the road. Turned out to be a Burying Beetle (Nicrophorus carolinus). I moved both off the road so the beetle didn't have the same fate as the toad.
Another fascinating part of field herping, along with all the other natural wonders we encounter, is the invertebrates! This forum is dedicated to both field and captive invertebrates.
