They may be small but ants are incredibly smart and fascinating creatures. They can carry between 10 to 50x their own body weight, depending on the species. They have 2 stomachs, one for holding food for themselves and the other to hold food to share with other ants. They were even around when the Dinosaurs were during the Cretaceous period, some 130 million years ago!
All of the insects in the Oshkin collection feature incredible detail and are such a lovely hands on way for children to learn about different types of animals and the important roles they play in our ecosystem.
