    Yup, a butterfly garden! This kit includes a butterfly garden habitat (11" tall, 10" diameter) that pops up to stand on its own. You'll also get an Online Redemption Voucher for five Painted Lady caterpillars, butterfly feeding kit, instructions for care, plus interesting butterfly facts. Please note that there is an additional shipping and handling fee for the caterpillars and food.  Watch the caterpillar morph into chrysalises, then beautiful Painted Lady butterflies to keep in your butterfly habitat. Enough nutrient is included in the container for the caterpillars as they mature into butterflies, and after that you feed them with the aid of your butterfly feeding kit. When they're full grown, set them free! The sides of the butterfly garden habitat are made out of a see-through and breathable mesh for easy viewing. There is also a hook-and-loop fastener strap on top which will allow you to hang it from the ceiling or in front of a window (it also allows you to fold the habitat flat when not in use. Please note that butterfly larvae do not ship to Canada or HI and they will only be shipped during mild weather. - Stephanie

    Even young players can start identifying animal tracks with this fun game! Animal Tracks! includes 40 animal track cards and 40 animal cards. The track cards include a black print of the animal track, the animal's name, and the typical size of the track. Animal cards feature a full-color photo of the animal and its name. Directions for three games are printed inside the box lid (Yay! No papers to lose!); Concentration, Bingo, or "Guess the Tracks."

    Ever wonder what owls eat? Dissect an owl pellet and find out! Owls regurgitate the indigestible remains of their meals, which make their diet easy to investigate. This pouch contains one sanitary owl pellet and a bone chart. Use a tweezers or other small tool (not included) to dissect the pellet and then identify the remains using the chart. However, if you're grossed out by the "real thing," you may want to check out the Skeleton Pellets, which are synthetic versions of owl pellets with one (non-surprise) animal skeleton inside. - Jess

    The life of ants goes on pretty much unnoticed by people (unless they are in your house or picnic basket), so we don’t get to see the intricate tunnels and constructions they create. This huge ant farm allows viewers to see their ants build roads, dig tunnels, make bridges, and more. It is a tradi-tional thin rectangular habitat (13” x 9”) that comes complete with tunneling sand, connecting “antway” tube, and instruction guide. Top of the habitat includes a picnic background for fun authenticity. Add to the fun by collecting ants around your yard! (Ants not included). Your family will be amazed as you watch these tiny ants go to work! ~ Megan/Deanne

    By the same publisher as Nature Log, here's one specific to birds. Log sheets ask for particular information, such as wing shape, color, beak shape, etc. This log contains more pages than the Nature Log, and allows bird watchers to keep a running record of birds observed (Life List), and a bird part identification page. It also contains Photo/Artwork pages on which your young naturalist can paste a picture, draw a bird, paste a photo, or glue feathers from observed specimens.

      This kit is much like the Live Butterfly Garden (#003539) except it is more spacious. This butterfly habitat stands 18” tall and has a diameter of 15”. It is also made out of a see-through mesh, it “pops up” to stand on its own, and it can be folded flat using the hook-and-loop fastener straps that are attached to the top of the habitat (these can also be used to hang the butterfly pavilion).  This kit comes with a voucher for five Painted Lady caterpillars and food for them as well. Simply redeem your voucher online at InsectLore.com (additional shipping and handling fee is required when you redeem your voucher) and your caterpillars will be delivered to your front door. Detailed instructions, a pipette for butterfly feeding and Painted Lady butterfly Life Cycle Stages Figures are also included in the kit.  Please note that caterpillars can only be shipped during mild weather and within the continental US and Alaska. Caterpillars are not shipped to Canada or Hawaii.

    This fascinating Safari Ltd. set contains five pieces, each showing a different stage in the development of a frog. The set contains a cluster of eggs, three tadpole stages, and an adult frog. Each piece measures about 2-3" in diameter, and the back of the package explains each featured developmental stage. ~ Lisa

    Raising frogs from tadpoles sounds like a fun and educational experience, but if you don't have the time or desire to collect your own and make them a home, consider this kit. The kit was changed for 2015 and now includes a packet with tadpole food, nutri-sand and a postcard to request your tadpole and its new larger habitat. When you receive the packet from us, use the postcard to order the tadpole and its habitat from the supplier (no additional postage is necessary; please note that tadpoles may not be able to be shipped at certain times of the year, due to low temperatures. Cannot be shipped to Hawaii, Alaska, or Canada). The tadpoles are somewhat transparent so you can see into their bodies and even watch their heart beat. In 6-8 weeks the tadpole undergoes metamorphosis into an adult frog. The habitat and supplies provide the right balance of algae and other microorganisms to keep the frog healthy. Food is also included with a serving spoon to nourish all the way through metamorphosis. A Fun & Fact handbook gives detailed instructions, shares interesting facts about your new pet, and answers common questions. Once the frog has developed, you can send in for "stage two food" and a larger habitat if you wish. Frogs have an average life span of five years. ~ Rachel S.

    This is likely the most inexpensive bird feeder you'll find. The feeder part is a plastic tray that screws onto a 2-liter plastic bottle. Fill the bottle with bird seed, turn it upside down, and hang (hanger included) in a tree, or mount it.

    This fun-filled educational game teaches horse lovers of all ages how to recognize horses by breed, color, and marking. Three different adventures take players through a learning journey of 32 different breeds. The first is called Mustang Adventure, and players are Mustang ranch escapees trying to survive in the wild. Players compete to gather a large herd of mares and foals and keep them safe from danger. In the second adventure, Rancher's Roundup, players are on the other side of the fence as ranchers trying to recapture their horses by brand and be the first to herd them to Green Valley. The third adventure, Rancher's Revenge, is a strategy game as you round up horses by groupings including breed, color, and markings. Game contains rules for all 3 of these variations, 3 solitaire games, 55 horse cards in full color displaying the horse on the front (all have cool names like Bustin' Dust or Thunderbolt) and information about them on the back, 4 playing pieces, adventure cards, game board, die, and a booklet containing rules of play, horse information and a reading list. Whether players are ranchers or wild mustangs, they are sure to have lots of fun and learn a lot on the way! ~ Megan

    Watch ants dig underground tunnels with this unique ant habitat. This habitat is designed to be identical to an ant's real home, as the "cross-cut" design features an oversized tunneling chamber for easy observation. The habitat stands 8.5 inches high and its base is 11 inches x 5 inches, which makes tipping over virtually impossible. Thankfully, a locking lid also makes escape impossible for the ants! The habitat comes with "easy dig" sand, a sand rod, and instructions. A voucher is also included for Harvester ants to fill the habitat. The ants are free, but you will need to pay $4.00 shipping for 25 ants within the U.S. or $5.00 shipping for Canada. Please note that ants can not be shipped to Oregon or Hawaii. The double-sided viewing area and the dome shaped design make this habitat practical and fun.
