This tuesday i was in kalyan with my friend. I captured almost 10 different caterpillars in the river side. Soon i will post here on TN.
When we were walking to the main road i saw this big grasshopper. This is 4.5inches long & handsome too. It was so heavy that it could'nt fly. It was walking slowly in to the trees.
There are 18,000 kinds of grasshoppers in the world.
The grasshopper can live in all kinds of habitats.
The colors of the painted grasshopper warn birds not to eat them.
Painted grasshoppers hatch in May or June.
The Painted Grasshopper is yellow, black, orange and white.
The longest grasshopper is eleven cm long.
Grasshoppers are herbivores.
Grasshoppers go through incomplete metamorphosis.
Grasshoppers have no ears. They hear with an organ called tympanum.
Most types of grasshoppers have two pairs of wings.
Grasshoppers have five eyes.
When the female lays her eggs, she covers them with a paste-like liquid that will protect them during the winter.
Nymphs grow for 40 to 60 days before they become adults.
Some grasshoppers rub their wings together to create music, others snap their wings together while flying, and others just rub their hind legs across their front wings.
