Help me identify an insect

  1. Jun 13, 2015 #1
    I've been riding my bike in the park and I've noticed this guy passing by. It was of a hand palm size. Intriguing. Can you help me identify the insect? image.jpg

    Kind of hard to make out in that pic but it looks like a cricket.

    I clicked on it and it gets a little bigger but still hard to make out.

    Definitely a mole cricket, common in hot and dusty environments, heres a closer view of the mole looking creature.
