Earthworms with a side of Pseudoscorpion

Our "worms" class at the arboretum went very well. Lots of people are interested in vermicomposting. The kids just like worms because they're cool. But I saw something in the worm bedding I'd never seen before.

A tiny pseudoscorpion!

It was hard to photograph it because it was so tiny.

So you can better appreciate how miniscule this critter was, here it is posing next to a grain of rice.
