Acrididae, eggs, Melanoplus differentialis or Melanopus ..... - Melanoplus differentialis
100 Acre Wood, Winneshiek County, Iowa, USA
May 10, 2017
Size: 5- mm
May 10, 2017: eggs found by J McGee while digging in the soil
June 2, 2017: grasshoppers emerged, put into a big container along with grasses, sweet clover, this and that. Every time I tried to take photos a couple escaped, which was fine as long as I ended up with ONE adult. Same thing happened every time I cleaned the jar. I guess I never really apprecaited their ability to jump, and my inability to catch.
mid August 2017: TWO adults, set free
Batch (as it were) rearing. SAme batch of eggs, not all the same individual.
