The Gold Grasshopper is a harmless Critter. It is a rare, golden recolor of an ordinary Grasshopper, with a 1/150 chance of spawning in place of the ordinary version (when the player breaks grass piles).
As with all other golden critters, it is detected by the Lifeform Analyzer, and it can be caught with a Bug Net and sold for 10 . It can be used as bait and along with the other golden bait critters has a bait power of 50%, the highest usable value among bait.
