Grasshoppers are ancient insects dating back to the Triassic period (250 million years ago). They're ground-dwelling herbivores with strong hind legs, which allow them to jump long distances. They make their trademark chirping by rubbing pegs on their hind legs against the edges of their forewings.
Usually, even as herbivores, the solitary grasshopper poses minimal threat to local vegetation. However, in particular, in situations where drought is followed by rapid vegetation growth, the grasshopper's brain releases serotonin which causes the ordinarily lone insect to breed like crazy and form migratory swarms.
We've brought you this fantastic little creature's likeness in the form of a grasshopper pin. The brass, copper, and stainless steel contrast beautifully together. We've painstakingly carved the intricate details of the grasshopper's structure, giving you a realistic depiction and a nicely textured feel.
