Hi I found this on my drive this morning and we live in Erbil, Kurdistan, Iraq.
It is dead ( i presume) and approx 3.5 to 4cm in length.
Please any idea what it is.
It's a Mole Cricket - Orthoptera: Gryllotalpidae.
They nibble roots and worms - apart from that they are harmless.
Great thanks so much. Is it complete as it looks like it should have wings? I think its really cute but i am alone on that thought.
Almost complete - wings and 'feet' are mostly absent, looks like if has been bird food.
