The adult Giant Green Slantface grasshopper is green in colour with brown strips on its head. Its head is in cone shape and with short and flat antennae. Its pair of hind legs are long and spindly.
Grasshopper Nymphs can be found in brown form or in green form.
Their nymphs look similar to the adults except smaller and no wings. Because of their wingless and slender body, they may be mistaken as Morabines.
They usually active after sun set. The grasshopper feed on long blade grass.
The grasshopper has the long cone head and slant face, this explained why they are called. Also notice its flat antenna.
This Longheaded Grasshopper is a slow moving insect. Although the adult grasshoppers are fully developed wings. They are poor flyers. They fly for short distance, about one to two meters, then drop and hide on floor. They make buzzing sound when in flight.
Their long legs are not strong, merely for walking between grass, and they do not jump very well neither. The grasshoppers depend on its camouflage colour to avoid predators. When they hide in grasses, they hardly be seen.
When disturbed, they opens their wings to make noise and shows the pink-red abdomen under its wings as the secondary defence (the first defence is camouflage).
