Bunny Rabbit

We found this baby rabbit in our yard when my kids were little.

After a day or two, we saw his mommy in the yard, and put him out there with her.  The two of them hopped away living happily ever after.  (I took a sample of his hair using a piece of sticky tape.  See my page on “hair” under the microscope.)

Where Can I Buy Tardigrades?

People often ask me where to buy tardigrades.
Here are two sources:

I haven’t purchased from them before, because I find my own. After all, I am the “Space Bear Hunter,” officially dubbed in the below video. But you may want to fore-go the risk of ticks and hanging inchworms.
