In this episode, Steve delves into the lives of the animals that live in and around our backyards. He explains how beetles find a mate, unravels the mystery of a trampoline tryst and reveals otters caught on camera by a clever viewer. We see a colourful escapee, a stick insect named Steve and a caterpillar colony that puts spiders to shame.

In a DIY demo, Steve then shows us how to make a super-speedy bird bath to keep our feathered friends clean and fresh! Show less
