DESCRIPTION AKA Spiny Devil. Panacanthus cuspidatus is one of the conehead katydids, all of which have a spike sticking up from the tops of the heads. In this case, the spike is a huge, three-pointed red horn. The rest of the head and the legs are also covered by spines. It uses its extremely powerful jaws to feed on forest seeds and fruits. Unlike most katydids, this one can easily break human skin with its bite.
