Buggin' With Ruud

Insects may be small and regarded as pests by most humans, but they are often armed with the most sophisticated natural weaponry on the planet. Follow quirky New Zealand-based entomologist Ruud Kleinpaste as he journeys the world to uncover little-known secrets about the insect world and debugs myths about various creepy-crawly species in Animal Planet’s brand new series BUGGIN’ WITH RUUD. Episodes premiere on Animal Planet every Thursday at 2200 hrs (10:00pm SIN/HK), starting December 4. Encores on Friday at 0600 (6:00 am) and 2100 hrs (9:00 pm); Saturday at 0300 (3:00 am) and 1500 hrs (3:00 pm); and Monday at 1400 hrs (2:00 pm).

Using unique demonstrations and humorous analogies, Ruud covers a gamut of subjects from insects that use disguises for deception to those that gang up in droves to use the most lethal of weapons, the mass attack, all the while showing how bug feats compare to those on a human scale, making a connection between our lives and those of insects. Join Ruud this December as he gets up close and personal with bugs of all shapes and sizes in premiere episodes of BUGGIN’ WITH RUUD.
