So is it a grasshopper or a cricket? Though both are from the same family, crickets are nocturnal and this one came in the morning. Crickets tend to be brown or darker in color to blend in with shadows while grasshoppers blend in with grass.
Other differences might be the length of antennae, appearance of horns, ears and the sound they make when calling others of their kind.
Anyway, read here to know the role of crickets and grasshoppers in tracking climate change.
