wax models

Remember that A. aegypti mosquito that I mentioned a couple of weeks ago? The one that was responsible for transmitting yellow fever from Africa to the Americas, and from there, shaping the outcome of various imperialist projects?

Here it is again – in a 9-inch wax model – at the Wellcome Trust. Listen to Gryff Rhys Jones and Simon Chaplin discuss the mosquito and its influence on human projects: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0336tgz

And here the menace is again, in a drawing, for your viewing pleasure
