Grasshoppers are typically ground-dwelling insects with powerful hind legs which enable them to escape from threats by leaping vigorously.
At high population densities and under certain environmental conditions, some grasshopper species can change colour and behaviour and form swarms.
They protect themselves from predators by camouflage; when detected, many species attempt to startle the predator with a brilliantly-coloured wing-flash while jumping and launching themselves into the air, usually flying for only a short distance.
Most types show an "ordinary-song", with which the females are lured, a "rival-song", with which the males delimit its territory against each other, and a hymn with the Balz.
