WILDLIFE WEDNESDAY
Huge welcome to the newest addition to the Randall Museum's live animal collection, the Horse Lubber Grasshoppers!

Their head looks like a horse’s head which is where it might have gotten its name from. The “lubber “ portion is probably because these grasshoppers cannot fly.

Their extremely bright colors of reds, pinks and yellows warn predators to not try eating them. If that doesn’t work, these Grasshoppers exude a frothy white substance that is poisonous. However, if Horse Lubbers come upon others of their species, they readily eat them!

Art tools are all around us! In one camp session this summer, campers not only drew inspiration from nature, but used its forms to mark their canvases.
