I took these images while I worked at a nursery a few years ago.

Florida’s Giant Orange Grasshoppers

Florida’s Giant Orange Grasshoppers

Floridians has some pretty spectacular insects.  You have to go looking for most of them, but it’s hard to miss the eastern Lubber grasshopper.

This giant, slow moving grasshopper’s bright orange, yellow and red colors are a warning that it contains toxins and will make any potential predator sick.   If for any reason, you fail to heed the color warning and pick it up, the grasshopper makes a loud hissing noise and secretes an irritating foul-smelling foamy spray.

Chlorophyllum molybdites on a muggy summer’s day.

Though poisoning cases are rare, the false parasol causes intense gastrointestinal distress in people and may be deadly to dogs and horses. Puppies and adult dogs that like to chew are especially at risk for ingesting the fungus.
