Description

Gumleaf grasshoppers are very large grasshoppers found across australia, with G. australasiae being the most widespread and the largest. They feed solely on Eucalyptus leaves and during the day they lie on the ground imitating one until disturbed, adults will jump and glide away while nymphs will jump into cover such as long grass or leaf litter and remain still for at least a few minutes. At night they climb up the trees to feed on the foliage. They are peaceful with other herbivores and can be housed with stick insects.
