Looks like a forked tail, and has the split color eyes I see in Scudderia around here. Let's see if others agree.

food?
I tried to give it some leaves from a Chinese Elm, but it doesn't seem interested. Any idea what it prefers? I did found it on the ground, near several landscape plants, but not on any of them.

 
food
The guide says "Leaves of deciduous trees, shrubs." You can always try some lettuce, carrot, apple. I had a pet cricket that wasn't very picky, though.. this is a katydid and that stuff isn't on its usual menu. Maybe you should just try a variety of tree leaves from nearby? Good luck.
