Eastern Lubber Grasshopper


This large colorful grasshopper, Romalea guttata, is native to the Southeastern United States and may be found right here in Houston. The term “lubber” means a clumsy fellow, which describes these awkward grasshoppers very well.

Unlike most grasshoppers, lubbers cannot hop well and are unable to fly. Their bright colors advertise to potential predators that they are distasteful and possibly toxic.
