It is native to the arid brush and grassland regions of the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. They generally grow to about (7 cm) and weigh about 9 grams.) This invertebrate feeds on foliage, flowers and seeds of some of the more common summer annuals. Interestingly, it does not usually feed on the plants it roosts on. Unlike other grasshopper species, they do not mass in large number except when the are young, shortly after emerging from their eggs. These grasshoppers are usually flightless and fairly sluggish. They can defend themselves chemically, but can also move resources to grown wings instead.
