Now that I’ve got my Foldscope, I am dying to see my first water bear. I collected a piece of moss from my backyard and brought it inside using a paper bindle (used in my Forensics class as a form of evidence collection). I mounted a piece of it onto a glass slide, but unfortunately I haven’t found a water bear yet! Are there any tips for finding water bears?
Even though I didn’t find any water bears, I still had a blast looking at moss under the microscope.
