Summary, etc.:
Mini world of insects & spiders: You may think that the insects you see crawling along the ground or buzzing overhead are nothing but simple bugs. A closer look at their lives will reveal that insects and spiders have many interesting and unusual ways of finding food, laying eggs, building their homes and protetecting themselves. This program illustrates how insects and spiders perform daily tasks in unique ways and the difference between the two. Includes suggestions for careers in this field of study.
Farmer ants: Atlas ants, commonly referred to as leafcutter ants, are the farmers of the ant kingdom. They farm their crops similarly to human farmers and biologists marvel at the precise farming techniques, efficiency and coordination that have kept these remarkable creatures in existence. This program looks at the behaviors of leafcutter ants and explores their agricultural ability along with their natural instinct to farm and maintain crops that are pest and disease free. Includes suggestions for careers in this field of study.
