Osaka resident Kana Yamaguchi was found a bunch of insects in her flower bed while mowing her lawn. She saw a pair of strange creatures that looked like grasshoppers in white and pink among them. Later, she found the same insect in the usual green color.

Never realizing what these creatures were, the woman caught them and brought to the Osaka Museum of Natural History. When the find fell into the hands of entomologist Itaru Kanazawa, the specialist immediately identified the insects, but was extremely surprised. He suggested that it is just albino Grasshoppers.
