Slightly Musical Conehead Katydid? by melvynyeo Slightly Musical Conehead Katydid? by melvynyeo
Is this a Slightly Musical Conehead Katydid? Very cool name huh!! :)

Tettigoniids may be distinguished from grasshoppers by the length of their filamentous antennae, which may exceed their own body length, while grasshoppers' antennae are always relatively short and thickened.

The diet of tettigoniids includes leaves, flowers, bark, and seeds, but many species are exclusively predatory, feeding on other insects, snails or even small vertebrates such as snakes and lizards. Some are also considered pests by commercial crop growers and are sprayed to limit growth. Large tettigoniids can inflict a painful bite or pinch if handled but seldom break the skin.

I love the names that are given to some animals! :D The really long ones are always a kicker, and in a lot of scientific names there are jokes involved.
