We saw this rather alarming looking creature on our gravel this morning. It is an ephippiger, a harmless member of the cricket family. Like yesterday’s rather more interesting chameleon it favours Mediterranean scrub and this covers the hillside in front of our house.

I took it back across the road so it could return to its natural environment.

Here is a photo of the hillside across our road which illustrates the environment of the chameleon and ephippiger.
