Shownotes

Have you ever been outside during the spring and you see what looks like spit clinging to the sides of plant stems? Well, it's not spit, but it is a body fluid, and it hides a fascinating little creature that grows up to be something even more fantastical. Learn all about these snorkeling, high jumping, super-powered true-bugs with Dr Jason Cryan as your guide.

Watch a Froghopper's incredible jump in slow-motion!
