|Narrated by Academy Award-winning actress Dame Judi Dench and filmed in the lush tropical forests of Borneo, the 40-minute film gives moviegoers a new appreciation for the amazing complexity of the insect world, featuring more than 40 tropical insects, some magnified up to 250,000 times their size, and other creatures, including rhinoceros beetles, leaf-cutter ants, an aggressive spiny katydid, tarantulas, scorpions, vipers, and millions of Mulu bats. Audiences witness the births of hundreds of praying mantis, watch a caterpillar hatching from a single tiny egg to later metamorphose into a magnificent butterfly, and see a praying mantis snap up a fly for its dinner.
