It isn't easy being as delicious as a grasshopper!
These insects are a popular source of food other animals, such as reptiles. What makes it even tougher to survive as a grasshopper is the fact that some of those reptiles have evolved some pretty spectacular hunting strategies! Well camouflaged chameleons, for example, can flick out a long sticky tongue in the blink of an eye to catch an unwary grasshopper for a snack. Could you imagine if people could do that with their tongues? You'd be able to grab the last slice from a pizza box before anyone even knew you were in the room!
