You'll be amazed at how much goes on beneath our feet in the underground world!
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?
Follow the Eco Kids into the world of creepy crawlies, blood-squirting lizards and real-life zombies, mind-control tricks and flowers that smell of death. Discover the seven top spider superpowers, some of which even the spider-man would envy! And even if you already heard about the bats’ legendary upside-down sleeping and blood-sucking habits, find out what really makes them such awesome SUPERHEROS!
EXTRAS: This issue also includes a vampire bat finger puppet.
Explore the mini-monsters of our waterways, go marching with army ants and find out answers to some curious questions... Do insects poo? What creepy-crawlies live on your face? And just why are minibeasts so important?
EXTRAS: Our readers can also create a spider finger puppet and some spooky slime.

Simon investigates dangers coming from space, and Charlie meets with a black kite in Australia to learn about the bushfires. Amy's report follows the tales of animals possessing the power to predict terrible natural disasters. Do animals know something that we humans don't?
