|From huge spiders to spindly stick insects, there are around 100 bugs hiding on every double-page of this book. Ages 8+|
We've got a forest spider ("Wolfie") in a terrarium on the kitchen counter, some pill bugs in her forensic entomology kit, and two woolly bear caterpillars (one banded "Caramel", one yellow "Vanilla") in a terrarium on the picnic table out back.We're going to house them overwinter and watch them cocoon and transform into tiger moths.
We've also been making regular visits to an enormous bee/hornet? nest in a tree along our bike path, as well as to the field next door to catch crickets. We're having so much fun.
