Here’s a time-lapse video from a project I did using Dermestes lardarius to clean a rat’s skull. The project was aimed at showing different imaging techniques i’d learnt during the third year of my Zoology BSc but I used it as an excuse to access the university’s colony of dermestid beetles. To prepare the rat’s head I removed the skin and the brain.
Are you a bug because boy I would let you crawl all over me! ;3
