Do you love books? We do too! Some humans are bibliophiles (that is, we love books), but the difference is that we love to read them. This little guy loves to eat them! Fortunately for us he doesn’t go around snacking on Seuss, chowing on Chaucer or devouring Dickens. At least not on purpose. He lacks our good taste in literature.
The larvae (baby insects) of the Death Watch Beetle and Common Furniture Beetle (who this plushie refers to) will eat both paper and wood if they are nearby. The damage these little buggers can do can be extensive (and expensive!) but if you take good care of your collection, you probably don’t have to worry about it. Bugs like Anobiun Punctatum (this plushie) like the environment where the books are to be just right. Speaking of books, a certain blonde-haired girl who did a little B&E on a poor family of bears thought the same thing about some porridge.
As with all GIANT Microbes, the Bookworm comes with a little tag that tells you all about him – where he is from, where he lives, what he eats, and more! This soft plushy toy is a perfect education tool for biology class, or even for a class at the local library about how you can care for your books!
Giant Microbes are perfect for teachers, parents and kids interested in science or humorous gifts. Each plush microbe comes with an information tag including scientific name, an image of the actual microbe, and a mini history and science lesson. Not suitable for children under 3 years.
GIANTmicrobes are fun and educational way to learn about various health topics and the microscopic critters that are found in and around us.
