[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Portuguese]
Os gafanhotos, acridianos, acrídios, ticuras ou tucuras1 são os insetos pertencentes à subordem Caelifera da ordem Orthoptera, caracterizados por terem o fémur das pernas posteriores muito grandes e fortes, o que lhes permite deslocarem-se aos saltos. Algumas espécies formam enormes enxames que podem devastar grandes plantações.

Os gafanhotos são polífagos, se alimentam de folhas de vários tipos de plantas tais como: citros, arroz, soja, pastagens, alfafa, eucalipto e outras.
