My son found a grasshopper and put it in a fish bowl with
cover, and we need to know what to feed it? we have it some lettuce and
apple and a bit of water.
Sounds ok so far, most any kind of green plant should be ok, doubt it will
pay too much attention to the water. Don't expect it to live very long
Grasshoppers eat green vegetation of various kinds. They especially
love tall grass. The greener the better. Clip a variety of plants from
a nearby unmowed ditch or vacant lot and place them in a short container
of water and place the container of water and plants in your fish bowl.
The grasshopper will "eat it up".
