Wetas are brown. They eat each other and they also eat leaves and insects. They live in trees, shoes and logs and are native to New Zealand.They mostly come out at night and rats love to eat them. They don't have any ears.

I think they are evil and ugly. They scare me a lot and they can bite. I often find them in our forest and I scream and jump to make sure every one knows there's something disgusting around.

Bees -  (ngaro huruhurum - native) and (pi honi - honey)

We have a lot of bees in our forest and we need them to pollinate our flowers.  Without them we would not have any flowers at all.  Native bees like pohutukawa, rata and other native trees.


Cicadas live under ground  when they are nymphs and only come out to mate and to lay their eggs! Cicadas make a lot of noise and are about 2cm long. They are green and have got a little bit of brown and other patterns on their backs. When the cicada decides to shed its skin, it flies on to a tree and sheds the skin, then flies away.The female cicadas do not sing but the male cicada sings so that the female knows where he is!


Worms that you find living in the soil are called earthworms. Most of the earthworms you will find would be reddish brown and about the size of your hand. If you ever want to find an earthworm, you should look in the following places - damp soil, wood, meadows and gardens and our worm bin at our school.
