  • Grasshoppers are typically ground-dwelling insects with powerful hind legs, which enable them to escape from threats by leaping vigorously
  • The grasshopper has six legs. They have two pairs of wings. The back wings are larger while the front wings are small
  • The head bears a large pair of compound eyes, which give all-round vision, and a pair of threadlike antennae that are sensitive to touch and smell. The legs are terminated by claws for gripping.
  • They range in colour from green to olive or brown and may have yellow or red markings.
  • Most grasshoppers are herbivorous. Grasshoppers eat plants, primarily leaves, grasses, and cereal crops
  • A large grasshopper, such as a locust, can leap 20 times as far as their body length without using its wings.
  • Locusts are the swarming phase of certain species of short-horned grasshoppers in the family Acrididae. Swarming behaviour is a response to overcrowding
  • In certain parts of the world, grasshoppers are eaten as food. They are often dried, jellied, roasted and dipped in honey or ground into a meal
