When insects attack!

Has anyone had a run in with a giant grasshopper recently?

The reason I ask is that I woke up last night with something moving in my hair.

I jumped up and turned on the light only to see a massive bright green insect jump across the room.

I went downstairs to get a glass to catch it but as I ran up the stairs the grasshopper attacked again and leapt a good six feet straight into my face.

Luckily the impact seemed to stun it and I caught it in a pint glass.

I have never seen such a big insect in the UK. It was a good 12 cm in length.

Has anyone else been attacked by one of these monsters?
