Grasshopper facts:

The Scientific Name of the Grasshopper is Caelifera. There are over 11.000 known species in the world, covering every continent except Antarctica. Grasshoppers have an interesting body design with several cool adaptations. For example, Grasshoppers have five eyes! They have three extra eyes between the ones we normally see. Grasshoppers have two filiform antennae which are shorter and a little thicker than those of crickets. It is said that the sensory bristles on the ends of these antennae are the grasshopper’s nose.

The hind legs of a grasshopper are elongated and designed to jump long distances. They also have two pairs of wings which are attached to the thorax, which itself actually has three segments. The coloration of grasshoppers varies quite a bit, despite them mostly being depicted as green. This coloration ranges from yellow to brown, and primarily serves as a form of camouflage.

Many Grasshoppers can jump 10 times its length high and 20 times its length in distance! Adults range in length from 1 to 7 cm, with females generally being larger than the males. Males attract their potential mates by vibrating their wings or rubbing the wings along their hind legs.
