Creatures to be featured in 'Ice Station Antarctica'Written by Alex Gaffikin
These creepy critters gave me the shivers whilst measuring them up for display. Our new exhibition, Ice Station Antarctica, will have a section about how animals have adapted to the cold Antarctic seas. Both these guys demonstrate gigantism; the sea spider (right) is 1000 times bigger than it's European counterpart. The sea louse (left) is 50 times bigger than a normal louse. Thank you Lloyd Peck from British Antarctic Survey for supplying them. They'll be alarming our more squeamish visitors to the National History Museum next May.
