|My bicycle trip trough Tunisia|
Near the magnificient Roman ruins of Sbeïtla I ran into this strange grasshopper (Euryparyphes sitifensis; Brisout de Barneville 1854; Pamphagidae). It is a female, the males have a shorter abdomen that is curved upward.
NB: Sbeïtla was together with Kasserine during WW II the theater of tank battles between US-British and German- Italian troops.
