Come face-to-face with some of our world’s smallest inhabitants. Bugs! is a breakthrough live-action nature film that explores the lives of an old-world praying mantis and a beautiful butterfly, known by their Latin names, Hierodula and Papilio.
Born in the same part of the exotic Borneo rainforest, 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.
Discover a fascinating array of creatures in this lush and awe- inspiring habitat. Produced by Principal Large Format in association with Image Quest 3-D. Executive produced by SK Films, Inc. Bugs! was shot on location in Borneo and in a purpose-built studio in Oxford, England.
