3D nature documentary shot in the rainforests of Borneo and in a purpose-built studio in England, exploring the tiny but savage world of a praying mantis and a butterfly. Narrated by Judi Dench.
The stars of Bugs!, Hierodula the mantis and Papilio the butterfly, are born in the same part of Borneo. Their home is the foliage around an abandoned and dilapidated shack on the edge of the river. Hierodula develops by incomplete metamorphosis; emerging from his egg as a mini-mantis and shedding his skin regularly on the way to gaining his adult wings. Papilio goes through a complete metamorphosis, from caterpillar to butterfly via the pupal stage.
