I recently moved to Ireland from the west coast of the United States. I am posting photos of the wild and wonderful things I encounter.

Today we visited the Grant Museum of Zoology at University College London. This museum is used for comparative Zoology classes in the mornings and is open to the public in the afternoons. We really enjoyed speaking to the museum curator and looking at the amazing specimens. They had a fascinating exhibit called the Micrarium. It was a closet-sized space with microscope slides mounted on light-box walls. Interesting Fact: 95% of animals on Earth are smaller than your thumb, yet most museums only exhibit the biggest 5%. This exhibit gives the little guys a chance to be appreciated. Well done Grant Museum!
