Discover life through an insects' eyes with the How Insects See kit. This rare insight into an insect's world will allow you to observe nature from a whole new perspective.
Unlike human eyes, insects have eyes that specialize in detecting movement. Their eyesight is composed of hundreds of hexagonal units called ommatidium. The ommatidium assists insects in judging distances allowing them to capture their prey. With the three interchangeable lenses inside, you will discover how different an insect’s perspective of the world is.
Recommended for four years of age and over. Not suitable for children under the age of three.
Packaging dimensions: 227 x 179 x 50mm
