Today's winner is: Connie Hopkins, Somcrville, 1 Alabama Maybe a better question would be: what don't grasshoppers eat? The grasshopper's appetite for practically anything green that grows has long made him one of man's dreaded enemies. • According to the Bible, grasshoppers (or locusts, which are migrating grasshoppers) r were one of the ten .plagues pf Egypt. In 1874 and 1877 the United States had two great plagues of gruss- hoppers. They originated in the plains east of the Rocky Mountains, spread to the Mississippi Valley and then to Texas, When they appeared, }t was'like a great black storm in the sky. They not only ate every living green plant, but also the family laundry hanging outside, entered houses to eat the curtains, upholstery and rugs! Have you ever caught a grasshopper and examined it while it lived in a glass jar? It's an interesting insect to observe. If you give it a green leaf, you will see Die grasshopper hold the leaf between the claws ol its two'front legs. It bites and chews this food with its two pairs of jaws, The upper jaws, or mandibles, have notches on them. A grasshopper's legs are quite remarkable too. The front and middle pairs are short, but the rear pair are longer' than its entire body; Euch rear leg has an upfler section,'raited the "femur," which has very strong muscles. The lower part has sharp spines. When the grasshopper is about to jump it digs those spines into the ground then suddenly straightens t h e legs and shoots forward. It can go 6 to 10 feet in one )wp! TO* Is quite rejwk' e, because it's 'from 70 to W time* the length o| its body, Try to make a standing jump and see how many times the length of your body you can go. With the coming of winter, the adult grasshoppers die. But 11 new crop of grasshoppers passes the w i n t e r in the egg stage.. In the spring, the baby grasshoppers come out of the eggs, and begin to eat green plants right away. They molt (burst out of their skins) live times in a period of six weeks, so ypu see they grow quite rapidly. After the fifth molt, they arc adults and ready to go about eating every green thing they can get their jaws on! FUN TIME The Chuckle Box Judge: And what is the verdutc of the jury?
