purchase online.


Jewels of Nature will add dramatic flare to any room. This grasshopper is farm bred, with a certain number released into their natural habitat to ensure their population remains stable.

Product Information Card (included on the back of each frame): Found in Madagascar, this locust is more commonly known as the Rainbow Milkweed Locust. Its colourful exterior is both beautiful and harmful. The rainbow hues seen on a Phymateus saxosus warn predators, both animal and human, that it is highly poisonous. This is a result of its diet of toxic milkweed. Threaten this grasshopper and it will produce a poisonous froth from beneath its wings.
