A grasshopper that look evil and fit perfectly into a invading martian in sci-fi movie. Except this quiet and non-assuming creature is a peaceful garden dwellers that was found in the serene Bukit Batok Nature Park.
Besides the fierce alien look, this grasshopper is unique in the orientation of its hind “jumping” legs. They seems to “lean” forward and in a very unnatural position.
I am still trying to find out the ID of this grasshopper. The first one i met was at Mandai Orchid Park a couple of months ago. Hope the next time we meet i will get to shoot the front shoot showing those big compound eyes.
