Everything is hopping and singing!
For a year grasshoppers and some of their close relatives are moving into the terrariums of the exhibition space in the Biologiezentrum. Walking leaves and various stick insects are to be discovered there. Their remarkable camouflage is not only displayed in their form, but even their movements are reminiscent of twigs in the wind. Perhaps a stick insect will stride along your arm during a tour? Or maybe you will be startled by the praying mantis catching its prey? Mantises such as the “wandering violin mantis” or the “giant African mantis” catch their prey unawares with a lightning-quick grab of their tentacles. An enlarged model of a locust and a microscope reveal what is hidden. For instance, you can see how grasshoppers generate their song and what the “ears” of these insects look like. During the “hearing” a variety of local types of grasshoppers engage in their typical species-specific singing. Identify the right insects with the right species names.
The world of grasshoppers opens up thanks to entertaining interactive investigation and informative reading. Topics relating to nature conservation such as the distribution of domestic grasshoppers by geographical location and altitude, types of grasshoppers as bioindicators and the natural grasshopper garden are also addressed.
However, many a topic will still take you by surprise...!
A mere 16 jumps would take you as a grasshopper from the Dornach tram station to the exhibition “Ghupft wia gsprunga” in the Biologiezentrum Linz – but regardless of how or by what means you come to us we look forward to your visit!
