Giant Grasshopper is a common name for TROPIDACRIS CRISTATA ssp. DUX, formerly known as T. dux — the largest know grasshopper.

I saw one while walking in Aktun Chen cenote park in Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico.
This specimen was about 10cm long. It was moving quite slow and was not too scared of the surroundings.
