[edit] Information

Some of the biggest and most beautiful bugs in the world live right here on the island of Papua, New Guinea. It's known as the land of the unexpected: a land of steep mountains, deep valleys and many different tribes' people who between them speak over 800 languages. Probably more than a quarter of a million insect species and around 900 different butterflies are here, and I'm on my way to find the world's biggest and some say the most beautiful butterfly: the Queen Alexandra Birdwing butterfly. And they are rare, rare, you wouldn't believe it. They only occur in one locality in this whole wide world, in a tiny southeast corner of the island. On the way, I'm going to find out why some beetles have butt-snorkels, and how one of the world's biggest, most beautiful spiders can not only catch birds, but maybe even an airplane. So why don't you come... buggin' with Ruud?

Produced by Michael Steadman Directed by Ross Johnston Narrated by Ruud Kleinpaste Edited by Marissa Bacon and Warren Saunders Music by Trevor Coleman Field research by Sarah Macleelan and Kate Guthrie 41 minutes, English audio, 2005
