It is a grasshopper, though I dont know what the scientific name is, I will have to reasearch it.

I am pretty sure it is a Pyrgomorphidae grasshopper. I have not got my insect book up here, but see this page:http://www.biodiversityexplorer.org/insects/orthoptera/pyrgomorphidae/
Was it similar? They are fantastic and a bt scary!
