The Life Cycle of a Worm features the four stages of a surprisingly complex creature. Their lemon-shaped eggs give birth to hatchlings, which slowly grow to juveniles. Months later, they become adult worms, capable of beginning the cycle anew.
Scientific Name: Lumbricus terrestris.
Characteristics: Worms may look simple, just a slender tube slithering through the dirt, but they are complex creatures that work hard to improve soil tilth and quality.
Size and Color: Matching the pinkish-brown color of earthworms, the figures come in a 7 ¾ wide by 9 inches tall blister pack, about the size of a tablet.
The adult worm featured in the set measures 3 ½ inches long.
Salmon undergo a long journey during their life, hatching from eggs in freshwater streams, growing up into adult fish, and then swimming out to the ocean to live most of their lives in salt water. When they are old enough to mate, they begin the long journey back to the streams from which they hatched, where they will spawn and, in most case, die.
Scientific Name: Family Salmonidae, subfamily Salmoninae
Characteristics: This set includes 5 figurines detailing the fascinating lifestyle of a salmon, from the egg all the way up to the adult fish. This set provides a fun, tactile way to learn about the life stages of these unique and important fish.
A female spider can lay up to 3,000 eggs. Many species then protect the eggs in a silk sac, which is then attached to the web so the mother can protect them. Once the eggs hatch, spider lings emerge, resembling smaller versions of adults. They eventually leave the web to grow into adult spiders and repeat the process.
Scientific Name: Order Araneae. There are over 45,000 species of spider in the order Araneae. Though they have a reputation for being dangerous, only few species of spiders pose a threat with their venomous bite. While they are commonly regarded as pests, spiders actually aid in controlling other common pests – they eat flies, centipedes, cockroaches, fleas and other undesirable bugs.
