The grasshopper is a small to medium-sized insect that is found in many parts of the world. They are known for their long hind legs which they use to jump around. Grasshoppers are usually green or brown in color and have short wings. Grasshoppers are omnivorous, meaning they will eat both plants and other small insects. Some species of grasshoppers can make a chirping sound by rubbing their hind legs against their wings.
