A little easier than my last question:

1. What kingdom is this organism from
2. What is this organism called?
3. What are the red dots called?
4. What are they used for? Provide 2 functions.

3. What do the corresponding knobs do?
1. A mechanical stage
2. It allows movement forward/backwards and left/right rather than up/down
3. One knob allows movement left to right, and the other allows movement forwards and backwards
