Small organisms, like insects, have problems with sound short circuiting, where the insect's body is smaller than the wavelength of sound they emit, so no sound is spread outwards. In order to make a sound with a shorter wavelength, insects need what is called a frequency multiplier. For example, cicadas have tymbal muscles under their wings that are pulled back and vibrate quickly to produce higher frequency sounds, which are then amplified by a semi-hollow body.

A pink katydid is seen in this photograph by Carol Freeman. Its unusual colour is the result of a genetic mutation known as erythrism, similar to the recessive gene that afflicts albino animals

Giant long-legged katydids are the largest of the Tettigoniidae family (contains over 6,400 species). They’re known by some as long-horned grasshoppers although they are much more closely related to crickets than grasshoppers. This species can grow up to 6 inches (15cm) long. Giant katydids like all katydids have long antennae which are known to exceed their own body length. The males have sound producing organs on the hinds of their wings which they create sound by rubbing together. by…
