    “Seen above, a worm installing a model of a man in “The Forest Floor” diorama, 1958.”  C’mon Dave, let’s be accurate; that’s a millipede installing a model of a man.

    We were camping on a small river island when i got up to stretch my legs at about 3:00 AM.  The island was covered with these slow moving 4″ millipedes, with several every square foot.  They were everywhere.  When the birds woke me at dawn the millipoedes were gone without a trace.

    The exhibit above is my favorite in the whole museum. It was the source of terrified fascination and thrilling near-nightmares since when I was a small child and I saw it for the first time.
