[Ligne directrice - Note] Note du photographe
The grasshopper is an insect of the suborder Caelifera in the order Orthoptera. To distinguish it from bush crickets or katydids, it is sometimes referred to as the short-horned grasshopper. Species that change colour and behaviour at high population densities are called locusts.
Grasshoppers have antennae that are almost always shorter than their body (sometimes filamentous), and short ovipositors. They also have pinchers or mandibles that cut and tear off food.
Grasshoppers prefer to eat grasses, leaves and cereal crops. Some will tend to eat from a single host plant, while others will eat from a variety of sources throughout the day. Only one of the 8000 species of grasshopper will only eat a single species of plant.
