Okay, maybe this version is better? It is a Common Stick Grasshopper (Acrida acuminata) and if it does not move, you would swear it is part of the grass.
In this one you can see the two brown ovals which are his eyes..... They are large, about 3 inches in length. Their breeding cycle in which sexually immature adults survive the dry season and lay eggs in respons to the first rains. Eggs hatch simultaneously and nymphal development is completed during the rainy season. The adults are present for a few summer months only.
Females lay eggs in sandy areas, producing a very long egg pod.
