Found a photo I took of a Florida grasshopper in St. Petersburg. To my New Englander friends up north, your eyes do not deceive you - this sucker is big; it's over two inches long.
To those who get freaked out by bugs, this is a friendly bug. He moves really slowly and you can actually pet them (why you would I have no idea) if you wanted to. And it is cool to watch them walk because they do that slowly. They also don't do much besides just hang out most of the time, so it's not like one would get in your face or anything like that.
