Orthoptera / Grasshoppers & Katydids



Grasshoppers are fascinating creatures, these bug specimens make great conversation points in collections and we have whoppers! I mean real whoppers bigger than your hand and their colors will amaze you. We suggest you start with the brightest red wing hopper from Madagascar (Ghp290) and when you want to splurge try our favorite purple winged beauty from Peru (Ghp295). Males and female grasshoppers look alike but females are always larger. Need some helpful tips how to spread those wings?
