Crickets & Grasshoppers

The Crickets and Grasshoppers of the large order Orthoptera are noted for jumping (to escape predators) and sing (to potential mates). Most have keen eyesight and hearing. They are very wary and are quick to leap away if disturbed using their highly developed hind legs. The adults of many species also fly.
