This insect was about 40 mm long!
Briones Regional Park
Contra Costa County, CA

___________
Origin of the name, according to an article by John G. Stoffolano, Jr., and Barton Wright published by the American Entomologist, Volume 51, Number 3: "One possible explanation for the name is that Franciscan priests working with the Navajos heard them call the cricket “skull head” and associated this with Skull Hill, the suggested burial place of Jesus."
