Another Interesting Critter

Chad was coming in from outside this morning and I heard him commenting on the size of a grasshopper.


I asked Chad to put a coin or something down beside it so we could have a comparison for its size and all he had in his pocket was a knife.


The big green ones like this bite and have drawn blood when Vince was trying to capture them for the chickens.  Chad has been catching grasshoppers for the chickens every evening so he was going to take this one to them and he said he could see it trying to open its jaws to bite him so somehow he got it on his pants leg and it stayed there while he walked out to where the chickens were and he brushed it off into their pen.  One grasshopper gone . . zillions more that I wish were gone.

    That is one huge critter. Don’t you have baby chicks smaller than that?

    That is one seriously huge grasshopper. So glad we don’t have them here!
