In nature, being small doesn’t mean you don’t matter. Some of the smallest creatures in the world carry out some of the most important jobs. Creepy crawlies help the planet run smoothly. If there were no worms or beetles to eat up rotten, dead things, and no bees and other insects to pollinate flowers, we’d be living on a very mucky, barren planet. In fact, we probably wouldn’t be living at all.
Discover the secret lives of bees, from what goes on in a hive to how bees grow up.
Cockroaches aren’t the cuddliest creatures, but they’re some of the toughest. They lived before the dinosaurs walked the earth.
Butterflies may look beautiful but they have to shed a lot of skins before the bright colours emerge.
