Meguro Parasitological Museum
“Try to think about parasites without a feeling of fear, and take the time to learn about the wonderful world of the Parasites." Let’s see, par·a·site: an organism that lives on or in an organism of another species. Fear is exactly what I’m feeling. But are those typically unwanted guests such as ticks, leeches, lice, bed bugs, tapeworms, roundworms really doing any harm? Yes, some; but the Meguro Parasitological Museum in Japan will enlighten you to the fact that many parasites can live in harmony with their plant or animal host. The two-floored museum gives its visitors the chance to see 300 specimens held in a 5% formalin solution, and luckily not their hosts.
