Stuffed “animal” version of E. coli, from GIANTmicrobes.
My sister sent me a link to GIANTmicrobes, a web site that sells stuffed “animal” versions of many common microbes and more. There’s quite a variety there—aside from the bacterium E. coli, featured here, they have viruses, insects, protozoans, and even prions! (That’s my favorite.)
I think anyone in the health sciences would appreciate these. Most range in price from US $6–7.
