What Satan spawned hell creature is this?

By Ben_Dover - 2 April 2012 8

hellspawn

Seen this morning at LBG.

About 4 inches long.

Couldn’t get better images as I was too scared to get close to it.

What’s Your opinion?

I saw one in my yard the other week and was too scared to get close to it to take a photo – glad I’m not the only one who thinks they are revolting!

I have nothing against bugs in general, I am usually quite happy to get close and take some macro shots, but watching this thing in motion made me feel physically ill.

It’s a cricket moll.

For an extremely unsuccessful miniature cricket team.

Mole cricket, you answer with a glint in your eye and a smile on your face. April first has long passed guys!

I asked the very same question a few months ago.

It’s apparently a mole cricket, and they’re harmless! I’ve seen another one since then as well. Maybe all the wet weather is driving them up out of the ground?

Shiiiit,

Another reason to stop more developments. Whatever it is, it has now become endangered (in the eyes of the anti-development lobby)
