  • Get the buzz on bugs!

    Are you ready to meet the fastest flyers, the loudest buzzers, and the sneakiest ambushers in Montana? Author and biologist Deborah Richie Oberbillig introduces you to forty of Montana's most mind-boggling bugs and their incredible feats.

    You'll meet:
    -A giant bug that attacks fish and frogs, injecting its digestive juices then sucking out the liquefied organs!
    -A bug that has antifreeze in its blood, allowing it to live on the snow in winter!
    -A bug that lives inside a home made of spit?!
    -And many more!

    Robert Rath's beautiful color illustrations bring these amazing creatures to life.
