Black Juvenile Lubber

When I saw this extremely large black grasshopper with yellow stripes in my yard, I thought I'd discovered yet another unusual transplanted beastie like the Giant Lubber. But as it turns out, this actually is a Lubber - this is what they look like when they're juvenile, and they eventually grow into a full yellow carapace as they mature and grow to insane lengths and eat everything in your yard.
