Velcro Under the Microscope

Shelley and Velcro together have enough curiosity to keep dozens of cats going (No, Velcro, you can't have a cat -- they really aren't that good to eat). One of the results of this was a visit by Velcro to the Scanning Electron Microscope at one of the labs at UBC, where Shelley works.

During the visit, Velcro sacrificed a couple of his quills in the name of science, which yeilded the fantasic pictures shown below.

Clicking on either picture will bring up a larger version.
