Anacridium aegyptium

Egyptian Grasshopper - I came across quite a few of these Egyptian Grasshoppers in the Algarve Portugal. Quite harmless but quite large at around 7 cm long! Much larger than our Common Green Grasshopper! Quite difficult to see because of the excellent camouflage. They are noticed more in flight when they take off right in front of you!
