There are 12 different colorful pins, buttons, or invisible spots that share information. Just guide your mouse slowly around the screen to find them. Look at all the different creatures or organisms on the screen too. Click the pins on them one by one! Each click will tell you something special about the creature. Pay attention to how the creatures are connected. Some creatures eat others, and some get eaten. They all have different roles. It's like a big puzzle!
