I am a science writer and independent museum consultant who is interested in the intersection of art and science. I am also fascinated by the history and philosophy of science. Check this blog for notes and updates about cool art-and-science miscellany.
I just read a news story about Idaho's giant Palouse earthworm. Researchers at the University of Idaho have captured two live specimens: the adult is almost a foot long, and the juvenile is around seven inches long. Furthermore, they appear to be translucent, so their internal organs are clearly visible. Wow!
