A gypsy's curse, or getting bitten by a werewolf.
That is so Lon Chaney you don't believe that?
Do you ?
I forgot...another method is to drink rainwater from a paw print left by a werewolf. This method is pretty obscure. I don't remember which lore it comes from.
Locusts and grasshoppers may share similar physical characteristics, but they are similar in so many ways. A locust is a grasshopper that has superior social characteristics. Therefore, a grasshopper only needs the right environmental conditions to transform into a locust. To differentiate between the two insects, you should keep these key points in mind:
A locust is a short-horned type of grasshopper. However, a grasshopper isn’t a type of locust.
Both insects are members of the order Orthoptera. However, grasshoppers belong to the Caelifera suborder while locusts belong to the Acrididae suborder.
Locusts can exist in two behavioral states, which are gregarious and migratory, whereas grasshoppers do not.
Grasshoppers belong to 28 distinct families, while locusts only belong to 1 family.
Locusts and grasshoppers cause significant damage to vegetation.
