mud dragons

This wall chart was drawn by Rudolph Leuckart in 1884 as a teaching aid. It shows mud dragons, a phylum of small (invisible to the naked eye) animals that live in mud. They are very widespread but nobody knows what they are good for.

they look like very fun creatures.
on a side note related to small creatures, I see that Mogwai has sold out. and me without a ticket. how disappointing. curse my poverty and dim wits!

I'm sorry to hear that. I hope you won't feel too small just because you are going to miss the most awesome cultural event of the year.

i have, however, managed to procure the entire new Mogwai album thru nefarious means. it is excellent.
