This insect is long and thin – like a stick. That is very clever because other animals cannot find and eat it.

These are also called “walking leaves”. Their body and its colour help them to hide in the trees and bushes.

This beetle is super strong. It can carry things 850 times its own weight. Imagine if you could hold up five elephants!

beetle = Käfer
850 times its own weight = 850-mal so schwer wie das eigene Gewicht

This fly lives in Austria. It looks like a dangerous scorpion but it is not dangerous at all! Scorpion flies eat fruit and berries.
