We’ve recently acquired a new office mascot. This one, unlike the pups Fritz and Hal, has 6 legs and is cold-blooded.
He (or she) is a grasshopper! (For those who like science, the order containing grasshoppers is Orthoptera, which contains generally grasshoppers, crickets, and katydids.)
Our grasshopper hasn’t been ID’d yet, but loves a cactus garden we have by a window. It’s not chowed down on the living cactus plants, but is finding the dying one delicious!
It’s been hanging out for a couple of weeks now, and isn’t showing any signs of leaving. At this point, we think it needs a name. Any suggestions? Prickly Pete has been thrown out there.
