Grasshoppers, crickets, and katydids are amazing creatures. They have enlarged back legs to hop with; wings for flying with exceptions; eyes, antennas, ears, and hairs to sense their surroundings; knowledge of what is edible; mouths to eat with; a digestive system to process the food; ability to reproduce, survival responses; knowledge to generate meaningful sounds; etc. Although they are said to be creatures of instincts, these instincts and bodily functions require an incredible amount of information to work. Information comes only from intelligence so there had to be a creator.

All insects shown on this page were found in Central California, USA, except as noted.

Dark Jerusalem Cricket *
After weighing a dark Jerusalem cricket, it was transported for release in a clear container. During this process, it was very calm until it accidently was carried by some lizards, predators of insects, nesting in a small opaque trash receptacle about three feet away. The cricket then became very agitated but calmed down as it was transported from this area to where it was found. It then resisted attempts to release it from the inverted container by clinging to a concave portion inside followed by spreading itself over the three and a half inch opening. It then bite hard the person trying to dislodge it and scampered away to hide under a dirt clod.
