I do live here in Florida and I have had lizards attempt to eat "lubbers". They chew on them and spit them out because they produce a foul-tasting 'toxin' of some type. That's the only way a giant meaty snack that can barely move nor has any other defenses could make a living. Birds know and lizards learn that they taste like $hit. I've never seen any animal actually follow through and consume one of those Jurassic grasshoppers. Too bad too, they're enormous and easy to collect.
