Rainbow grasshopper nymph
What enclosure do you use for a colony. I imagine it would have to be quite big. I remember seeing the Florida grasshopper and they were huge as adults.

Theyre medium sized, about 3" max

Behave more like a lubber. Melanoplids dont really wander around. They spend 99% of their time just perched on something. They dont have to be fast or jumpy because nothing bothers them. They eat alot of baccharis so theyre quite toxic

I use a plastic cereal box. I soldered a bunch of cross ventilation and added sand. I recently bought some cat grass for them and just put the whole thing in with em. They seem to like it alot
