I had kicked a pile of bark mulch off the walkway and a bunch of tiny grasshoppers jumped out. We caught six of them. They were smaller than a pencil top pink eraser! Our son took this one in the house to be our pet. He named it and put it in the window sill where we have sunflowers growing. We have blinds that keep it from hopping away. Happy has lived for over two weeks on the plants!
One day we thought that there was another grasshopper with him. We thought Happy had a baby or something. But then we figured out that the other grasshopper-looking-thing was not alive. Happy molted! He shed his skin twice as he had grown in just a few weeks!
