We were having dinner at Fraser's Hill and heard a very loud deafening scream nearby. It sounded like the call of the Giant Cicada. It turned out that the cats were disturbing a very large Katydid. I have never seen a Katydid so big !
I found out later that it is the largest Katydid in the world and is from Malaysia. :thumbsup:
This individual has a body length of 4.5" but can grow to 6" ! :o

Thanks for sharing, Gan. Wah - this one is really BIG!! Wish I had seen it too as I find Katydids to be quite fascinating. It's body really looks like a nice big leaf. You are lucky to have spotted the biggest one in the world! Amy
