Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Service......Interesting to watch I bought this because of my fascination with insects. This habitat provides a great selection of bugs. One never knows what will be scurrying around the habitat during the day or night. The Bess beetles are my favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So entertaining Kit came with more than enough supplies to last for quite some time. All the insects with the exception of a couple cricket nymphs arrived alive and active. One of the two millipedes is positively gigantic! The Bess Beetles are neat but take care when handling them, one of ours is awnry and pinches very hard. We also received twice (10 of each) as many as expected of the cricket nymphs, adult meal worm Beetles, and pill bugs. My 3 and 5 year old kids are thrilled and so am I.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gift! A friend sent this to me for my 60th birthday. Eight months later I am still loving it. I am fascinated watching the inhabitants, especially the millipedes (the kit came with two and both survived). There were no slugs so I added some from our yard. Watching a leopard slug eat was so interesting. I know this might sound like an unusual gift, but it was perfect for me. (My son received one about 20 years ago and I've wanted my own for years!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is perfect for any lab or classroom. This project is absolutely amazing. The students loved being able to put together the kit and handle all the creatures. The students were very excited to see all the creatures up close. The students really enjoy taking care of the terrarium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where has this been all my life? I have been teaching for over 20 years, but I've kept unusual pets and critters for most of my life. Last summer, our summer school theme was "Insects and Reptiles". Imagine my delight when I came across your Life in a Rotting Log Kit. The assortment of flora and fauna included in the kit was impressive. The interactive component is limitless. I have added additional critters to the basic kit, and it is still going strong. Although my co-workers may not agree, a school full of K-8 students and I are delighted with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Engaging Material for Everyone Life in a Rotting Log Kit is a product that I recommend for anyone that will like to engage children, students, or themselves. It develops curiosity and discussion. The product itself brought more than stated on the site, and I believe it is worth the investment. The children at our club site love it and have develop an "Insect Club," as a result to the observation of the multitude of creatures this product brought.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for PreK This is the second time purchased, I love this kit. Great classroom tool, particularly for my kids who are soil deprived and insect shy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dead log booming with live It was so much fun to see the look of surprise and excitement on my students' faces (K - 5th) when they discovered all of the creatures living under pieces of dead wood. They especially loved the millipedes and bess beetles. After 9 months, my habitat still contains living millipedes, bess beetles, and darkling beetles. In fact, I am happy to say that I have a new millipede addition to my habitat (I started with 2 millipedes and now have 3)! What a motivating and educational product.
