I was under the house today when this caught my eye.
It is perched upside down on the joists that support the floor above, it is a weird looking thing, anyone know what it is?

I remember seeing the same thing long time ago except the shell's black in colour. It might be the egg of grassphopper....just guessing though.
Any zoologist expert here that can shed some ideas?

Dunno but we've got them too?

We have a ozzie biologist friend and he hasn't a clue so it must be weird whatever it is!! :scared:

Summer's coming so I guess we'll find out soon.

PS: Had our first Huntsman in the house yesterday... so it begins!

Oh, that's alright then... the Baygon spray will probably take care of it (eventually!)

Added to the title to see if it draws any more interest!
