Nature Detective WalkMinibeasts in their natural habitatsWe were exploring the creek for some tadpoles. I saw a tadpole with my eyes. I saw some mosquito eggs.I saw some slaters on top of a log. Slaters have hard shells.
On our walk we found some bees. You have to be careful because they sting like wasps. Wasps can sting 30 times. Wasps do not die from stinging you, but bees do.Chapter 4
