Oh katy didnt! WHY? Why did Katy! She used to be such a nice girl!

I found one of these with only three legs a couple weeks ago. I took it home and my daughter took care of it for about a week before it passed. She did the same thing with this beautiful large monarch butterfly with a busted wing that couldn't fly. I don't let her get bugs that are healthy- but if we find one that is going to die I don't see the harm in letting her try to take care of it. Awesome creatures.

I remember walking home from school one day and running my hand through the bushes next to the sidewalk. One of these guys ended up on my hand and I didn't notice until like a minute had passed.

Don't you eat plant leaves, too? (Do you eat vegetables?)

Katydids are great to have around the garden as they feed on insects, and they also help pollinate some flowers. https://backyardbuddies.org.au/backyard-buddies/katydids/

you should look up 3 or 4 sources instead of just the 1 that suits your purpose: [https://animals.mom.com/katydid-need-live-3121.html](https://animals.mom.com/katydid-need-live-3121.html) [http://www.biokids.umich.edu/critters/Tettigoniidae/#:\~:text=Katydids%20are%20primarily%20leaf%2Deaters,some%20species%20are%20quite%20carnivorous](http://www.biokids.umich.edu/critters/Tettigoniidae/#:~:text=Katydids%20are%20primarily%20leaf%2Deaters,some%20species%20are%20quite%20carnivorous).

So what's an insect suppose to do? I like them so much better than grasshoppers (or roaches, "waterbugs").
