Grasshopper - Tropidacris sp

Grasshoppers of the genus Tropidacris are the largest know. They are for the most part colorful insects with especially bright-colored wings having a most attractive color-pattern. Most species are relatively common, and sometimes they become abundant and destructive, which places them among the most obvious or even espectacular examples of insect life in the American Tropics (Carbonell, 1986).
