THE SMALLEST CONTINUOUSLY ROTATING EXHIBIT OF MOTHER NATURE'S TINIEST TREASURES

The Tiny Treasure pictured here is a pine cone.  It is probably a Ponderosa Pine, but we're not botanists, just pickers up of tiny treasures, so we aren't sure. 

Fun Fact: Pine trees reproduce through pine cones, which contain male and female sex organs.

The tiny treasure pictured below is a piece of an old wasp nest.
