Silent Slant-faced Grasshopper

in Animals

I like an insect that you can pick up and make friends with; like this magnificent Silent Slant-faced Grasshopper (Subfamily Acridinae). Isn't he a beauty? I've just picked him up from among those wild oats down there and he's taking being handled gently with equanimity. That's right, you sit up there on my shoulder – pirates have parrots, why shouldn't I have a grasshopper?
