Rated: CTC
Exempt from Classification*
Runtime: 45 minutes

Bugs: Mighty Micro Monsters 3D takes you on a tour of the bustling world beneath your feet to meet the true rulers of Planet Earth. From the Kenyan savannah to the tropical rainforests of North East Australia, the superpowers of these mighty micro monsters are revealed. In a playful nod to classic superhero movies, we will come face to face with some of the natural world’s most incredible creatures - we’ll meet the beetle that can fire boiling chemicals at its attackers, a deadly spider with super strength and many more miniature superheroes!

The world of bugs exists on a completely different scale to our own, but with specialist macro camerawork we can now take you and your students into this three dimensional, textured world like never before. All around us, armies of millions of blind ants march beneath your feet, caterpillars transform into butterflies and tiny beetles fire boiling chemicals at vicious predators.

With help from top entomologists, or “bug scientists”, this film brings the incredible and sometimes fearsome world of bugs to life.
