Caption: Silverfish. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a silverfish (Lepisma saccharina) on toilet paper. Silverfish are so named because they are covered in tiny shiny scales. They are primitive insects that have remained unchanged for millions of years, and are a common household pest, feeding on starches in food, books and clothes. Magnification: x50 when printed 10cm wide.
