Grasshoppers are known for their long hind legs, which they use to jump up to 20 times their height, and to make a chirping sound. They range in length from 1/2 inch to a staggering six inches in some tropical species! Grasshoppers can typically be found in greenish-yellow, green, brown, gray and brownish-black colors. With strong pinchers or mandibles to cut and tear off food, they can be found anywhere on land with grasses or leaves.
