Kid's Nature Magazines - Issue 60 - Underground Life

October 2019 edition: Underground Life

You'll be amazed at how much goes on beneath our feet in THE UNDERGROUND WOLRD! 

We all know that rabbit and moles live underground, but so do many unexpected creatures, too. Let’s look at underground bees, and wasps, and strange underground frogs. There are underground birds, too – and even bigger surprises than that!

How about we go down really deep? There’s a rich ecosystem of weird lifeforms below us that’s twice the size of the world’s oceans! From worms living in solid rock to ‘zombie’ creatures that don’t reproduce for millions of years… dare you visit them?

Meet some brilliant burrowers, greet the wild passengers of the London underground, and... make wiggly worm cupcakes!

Get ready to burrow down into this fascinating issue!
