The Micrarium - A collection of the tiny.

I recently visited the the Grant Museum of Zoology within UCL and came across the micrarium, essentially a collage of the tiny life forms of our planet. Each one is a microscope slide carefully preserved and presented within this awesome display.

It’s often very easy to forget that these smaller creatures from plankton to fungi have a huge effect in the world around us. For example a short post on how bacteria are superheroes. Also more about zoology here are some animals you may not have heard of.

Time Lapse of installing this awesome collection. More about the museum right here.
