Who is your Bug-a-like?

After a long and exciting day of bug hunting it’s time to relax and wind down. What better way to do so than to solve a fun quiz that will reveal which bug you would be, if you would be a bug.

Who is your Bug-a-like

If you take a walk into the woods today… you’re sure of a tiny surprise! The bugs go antennae to antennae for the spoils of a picnic in MINUSCULE.


In a lovely little clearing, the remains of a hastily abandoned picnic sparks a stand-off between two tribes of ants. A brave little ladybird finds himself caught in the middle of the battle but, having befriended Mandible, one of the black ants who is determined to protect the black ants’ haul of sugar cubes. As the safety of the black ants’ nest is at risk, our bold ladybird helps take on the aggressive red ants, who are led by the evil Butor, and must use all of his ingenuity and resolve to win the day.
