Grasshopper's Story

Another of the 2005-6 beach babies. Grasshopper was the most nervous and smallest of this group and was initially teamed up with Snatch, who took big brother care of him as a baby. Grasshopper would run to Snatch if he was being bullied.As he matured he tried to take on Snatch for head of the troop, this resulted in bad wounds, he wouldn’t give up this reckless challenge and now has to live separately from him.
