That’s awesome! I didn’t know they can jump like that!

BugmanDan

Jumping is not one of their strong points but they can bolt so quickly they can take flight.
Caught similar species by hand and sometimes coaxing them, they vault right over my hand. The part that makes them a challenge. Once on your hand, the just sit and chill.

You got it. 🙂
