  1. Totally. Lots of fun – they curl up pretty fast. Harder to actually “burn” them – I think instead they boil in the exoskeletons.

    Then again, perhaps “fun” was too strong a word.

  2. I remember doing this and also doing the same to grass hoppers. Plus you could take off the grass hoppers head and it would continue to hop around.
