Red and Black Grasshopper.

General information about Eastern Lubber Grasshopper :

Lubber Grasshoppers are slow, but they can excrete poisonous liquids that make eating them less than desirable for predators.
I haven't found an image of a Romalea microptera that looks just like this one, but many descriptions of the juvenile stage fit these images.
There are three older names for Romalea microptera:
Romalea gloveri
Romalea guttata
Romalea reticulatus

Unknown: Do you know what this is?
