Come watch roaches, sowbugs, millipedes and bess bugs transform a log into a mass of rotten wood, or examine maggots and dermestid beetles feasting on dead organisms. Every living thing dies and decomposes, and in the Rot Room you can get up close and see how materials break down, maintaining the continuity of life.
