Mole cricket out in the noon sun

3 10 2010

This little beastie (about 2 inches/5 cm long) came wandering past our back door late this morning, heading towards the driveway. I took some photos of him/her, and my husband told me he thought it was a mole cricket. The article and photo on Wikipedia confirmed its identity, but this beastie sure wasn’t nocturnal! And if it only lives on the eastern side of Australia, (as shown on the map in the Wikipedia article) then it was an awfully long way from home as I live in Western Australia!
