This past week my family and I went camping near Bartlett, NH. As we hiked we noticed so many grasshoppers. As we sat in the tall grasses to take a break, we viewed hundreds of "hoppers" who looked frozen in time, lifeless. Upon closer inspection, we had discovered exoskeletons, or molted bodies, of these insects. Unlike butterflies, grasshoppers go through an incomplete metamorphosis, where their bodies change gradually. Grasshoppers go through three stages in their life cycle – egg, nymph and adult.
