Merloth Park Crickets

Silvery sounds suspended in the air keep the nighttime feeling as bright as a summer's day. Little green legs link together and vibrate, hoping to attract a midnight lover or at least show the rest of the critters just how grand a grasshopper can get. This is a subtle service to the sound and symmetry of the forest, without which this noisy night would feel more like a misty outdoor mortuary. There are about 900 species of crickets. They tend to be nocturnal and are often confused with grasshoppers because they have a similar body structure including jumping hind legs. Only the male crickets chirp. A large vein running along the bottom of each wing has "teeth," much like a comb does. The chirping sound is created by running the top of one wing along the teeth at the bottom of the other wing. Crickets chirp at different rates depending on their species and the temperature of their environment. Most species chirp at higher rates the higher the temperature. This sound uses the following file from Freesound:
