Bug Art Wednesday: Pacific Dampwood Termite

Pacific Dampwood Termite

Pacific Dampwood Termite

One of the largest termites in the world lives in BC.

The Pacific Dampwood Termite can be as much as 2.5 cm long.

You can see them in the late summer as they fly off looking to start up a new colony. The queen can live up to 20 years or more.

Termites eat wood with their powerful jaws, and with the help of microscopic protozoans which makes up one third of their body weight they can digest the cellulose in the wood.

Space Art Monday: Milky Way

Milky Way Star Catcher

Milky Way Star Catcher

The Milky Way galaxy is a barred spiral galaxy with roughly 400 billion stars, including our sun.

The stars, along with gas and dust, appear like a giant band of sparkly light in the night sky.

The galaxy stretches between 100,000 to 120,000 light-years in diameter.

At the center of our galaxy lies a gigantic black hole billions of times the size of the sun.

The Milky Way star catcher to the left is trying to catch some stars for dinner!

Here is a space alien who already uses a space elevator!

Bug Art Wednesday: Giant Stonefly

Giant Stonefly

Giant Stonefly

The Giant Stonefly can be found along streams and rivers in BC.

They are about 40mm in length most of which is their wings.

Stoneflies are amazing because they have remained more-or-less unchanged for about 300 million years.

After all those years they still are not the best at flying.
