YOUR WEEKLY DOSE OF WOWZERS AND WONDER FROM THE NATURAL WORLD
We’re happy you’ve decided to join us on this unique journey of discovery and learning.
As fellow parents of adventurous explorers, we recognize the importance of encouraging our kids to discover the natural world around them.
Whether it’s pondering the vastness of our universe, or delving into a world teeming with life in our own backyards, there’s plenty for us to uncover.
So, who are we?
Well, first of all, we’re not experts and we’ll never claim to be.
We’re not educators either, and we’re happy to admit that we don’t have all the answers.
We are, however, dads of kids who love to explore and learn, and we’re passionate about helping them do just that in a fun, approachable, kid-friendly way.
That’s why we created Wowzerful, a weekly newsletter full of eye-popping wowzers and fascinating wonder from the natural world.
Meticulously curated. Beautifully designed. Conveniently delivered to your inbox.
We’re learning as we go and are excited you are with us.
We hope you like it.

The Praying Mantis
Ahhh, the Praying Mantis. Stealth assassin. Master of disguise. Ninja of the insect world.
We could think of no better creature to launch our new Wowzerful adventure with. After all, when it comes to insects, the Praying Mantis is a kid favourite – and it’s quickly becoming one of ours!
With its lightning quick reflexes, spiked raptorial legs and an uncanny ability to blend into its environment, unsuspecting victims stand little chance of survival when confronted by this formidable predator.
Known to take down flies, aphids, frogs, birds, snakes and even rodents, the Praying Mantis isn’t choosy about what it consumes for its next meal – what it can catch, it will eat!
Up to 1 year
Temperate locations worldwide
The only insect that can turn its head from side to side with a remarkable 180 degrees of movement.
