Springtail jumps, video

This is a video from the Netherlands; about a springtail jumping.

Springtails are ‘primitive’, non-flying relatives of insects.

They usually live in soil.

This Dutch video is about how to discover springtails and other small animals in soils, in your garden or in a forest.

The 68th UN General Assembly declared 2015 the International Year of Soils.
