Long and skinny

Post by Charles Krebs »

While going through some pictures I came across these three that were... well... long and skinny. So I put them together a single picture with three panels. Enjoy.

Hi Charles,

well I do enjoy! Do you have any idea what the upper one is? Some sort of contracted Homalozoon?

Best wishes

Bernhard

Hi Charles and Ken,

o.k. thank you. So what I took as cilia on the left hand side is actually the uroid. I'd never seen this before in "real life".

Thats right Bernard :D Amoebas are interesting little creatures although to sit and watch them one might not think so right off. They have been described by some as having a pseudointelligence. :D
