Katydids

Now on display in the Discovery Room are a group of giant Florida katydids (Stilpnochlora couloniana). As you can guess by their extremely long back legs they are excellent jumpers and once mature they will be abe to fly.

They have large appetites and are feeding well on bramble because although they are already quite big they still have a bit of growing to do.
