The Grasshopper is found hopping around town.
The Grasshopper can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"Grasshoppers are known for their unique songs, but unlike crickets, it doesn't come from their wings. Rather, the chirping sound comes from their rubbing their legs together. They look like a thicker version of locusts, but some species of grasshoppers actually eat locusts."
Upon catching the insect, the player will say the following:
"I caught a grasshopper! Seems it's hopped its last!"
