Frostbite Theater

March Microscope Madness! (Week 3 - 2016)

Announcer: Frostbite Theater presents... Cold Cuts! No baloney!

Joanna and Steve: Just science!

Joanna: Hi! I'm Joanna!

Steve: And I'm Steve!

Joanna: Welcome back to March Microscope Madness!

We're about to reveal the answers from last week's video, so if you haven't watched it, you probably want to go back and watch that now!

Steve: If you're ready...

Image one.

This is the egg of a monarch butterfly.

Joanna: Image two is the caterpillar of a monarch butterfly.

Steve: And, image three, continuing on with the theme, this is the chrysalis of a monarch butterfly, but it's the end where the chrysalis attaches to the silk pad.

Joanna: All right!

If you're ready for your next three images, here they are!

Image one, taken at a magnification of 100.

Steve: Image two, also taken at a magnification of 35.

Joanna: Image three, taken at a magnification of 100.

All right!

Don't forget to leave us your guesses in the comments and join us again next week for the answers and your next three images!

Thanks for watching!


Steve: Bye!
