This website is dedicated to information about the Metaleptea brevicornis, also known as the "Short-horned Grasshopper".

The Short-horned Grasshopper has characteristics like most other grasshoppers. They can be brown, green, or both and are brownish on the ventral side. They are 19-35 mm in length and have short, thickened antennae and is why they received the nickname "Short-horned" (Arnett 1985).

Throughout this page, you will be able to learn about their classification, habitat and geography, interesting facts, reproduction, and nutrition. This website is part of a larger project called MultipleOrganisms.net. Enjoy!
