Join ant specialist Ajay Narendra to learn amazing things about jack-jumpers and other ants that live on Mount Majura.

Ants are fascinating, beautiful and fun to watch. Some ants have a painful sting, and others only bite. Some ants are coloured, or scented, or hairy. Some pretend to be spiders, a few have excellent eyesight, and one species can jump!

Kids accompanied by adults are especially welcome.
