Jack Ashby, who manages the museum , said Thursday he is trying to give dragonfly nymphs, tortoise mites, and sea spiders the attention they deserve, unveiling a “Micrarium” devoted to some of animal kingdom’s smallest subjects. “You go to any natural history museum and it’s normally full of big animals, but actually the huge majority of life on Earth is absolutely tiny, and we thought we’d right that wrong,” he said in a telephone interview. “We want to give people a chance to see what makes up most of the animal kingdom.” (AP Photo/ UCL, Grant Museum of Zoology/Robert Eagle)
