Introduction to Grasshoppers: Grasshoppers are complex insects and have many specifics when it comes to their body systems and functions. Grasshoppers, like all insects, have a three part body of a head, thorax, and abdomen. They also have compound eyes like other insects. However, their legs and wings set them apart from others because of the jumping legs as well as walking legs that they use and the layer of wings they use to fly. Their segmented bodies are made up of a hard exoskeleton of tagmata. Grasshoppers indeed do have many differences in comparison to humans but as we look closely the systems will resemble!
