Description


Another grasshopper from my upcoming base set... The Meadow Grasshopper is very small (male 15mm (0.5 in), female 20mm (0.75 in)). Both sexes are flightless although they appear to have wings. In females, the wing cases (covering vestigial wings) extend only a short way down the abdomen while males have longer wing cases extending to almost the tip of the abdomen. They can be variable in color with green, brownish, purple-red and pink forms, but “greens” are most common. They range from the Atlantic coast of Europe, including the British Isles, to the Urals. They are also found from Scandinavia in the north to southern Spain and Anatolia in the south. Due to high densities of these insects in Western Europe, some researchers have also proposed their possible utilization as human food. These insects contain 69% proteins on dry weight with excellent amino acid profile and digestibility.

This is truly a wonderful render. As for eating grasshoppers . . . I'd rather starve!
