Cool Spots imageFrom school playgrounds to frozen snowfields to your own bedroom, microbes are everywhere. Discover this microscopic world at the Microbe Zoo. Head to http://commtechlab.msu.edu/sites/dlc-me/zoo and prepare to think small. At Animal Pavilion, you'll find out how the microbes that live inside a termite's guts are able to digest wood. Get wet and wild at Water World, where you can visit ponds, swamps and bogs that are rich in bizarre and colorful microbes. Just keep your eyes open for those nasty "pipe slimers" and the "red tide." And definitely embark on the Space Adventure, where you'll explore Mars with other scientists to find out if life ever existed on the Red Planet. If you're getting hungry from all of this action, then stop by the Snack Bar--the place to find tasty foods that are produced by microbes, including bread, chocolate and yogurt. Plus, the site is home to the House of Horrors, where such monsters as vampire bacteria and The Invader microbe hang out. At the Microbe Zoo, life is both beautiful and tiny.
