Carnivorous Locusts of Arizona

Today I saw this huge locust dragging something across the Shell station parking lot—it was the carcass of a grasshopper! He pulled it along, found a nice sunny spot, and tore into it. Usually locusts just eat your trees or grass or crops—first time I’ve ever seen one with flesh hanging out of its mouth. They make some meanass bugs in Arizona!

Hey grasshoppers are a delicacy ya know!
