It looks like an Ichneumon wasp (Amblyteles armatorius) It's a parasitic Wasp.

Its length depends if Snodvan was including the antenna in his/her measurements. They can be almost as long as the body, thereby doubling the length.

Nothing like the many locusts I have seen in Africa. I reckon it is the parasitic wasp. The 30mm I quoted was the body --- those long antenae add more

Besides being far too short for it to be a Locust The colour is completely different. The neck on a Locust is quite thick whilst the neck on this Wasp is almost none existent. Also it doesn't possess the heavy musculature of the Locust's hind legs.
I kept and fed Reptiles for many years and never saw a Locust that looked like this.

Sorry lashs, it's an Ichneumon Wasp.
