Grasshoppers (Mating)

I originally posted this with the thought, knowing nothing about grasshoppers, that the one on top was getting a lift due to a missing leg. They are actually mating.

In the days/weeks to come, I plan to organize my grasshopper photo collection, identify the different species, and post more pics and information.

  1. Like the pic.
    They are “helping” each other, yes, but not because the top one is missing a leg. They're mating.
    Just look how the top one has his abdomen bent towards the bottom one's.
    But I like the term “helping” 😉


  2. Yes, I was naive in my original assessment. I intend on going back and updating many of my silly older posts. I was wondering why the abdomen was in that position, thanks for letting me know.
