Escheria Coli was easy, seen it before a lot of times.
The two other microscopic shots where clearly microscopic in nature too.

But those other creatures; really cool, especially the first one!
You should mention the Man-of-War in the text too, most people know it, but are told they are yellfish.
And according to the video, that is not true! ;)

E.Coli is a bacterium, you realize. The virus shown is, in effect, a parasite of such.

That Siphonophore video is pretty darn cool. This is a great article, keep awesome stuff like this coming.

Yup, that was my mistake, corrected the text.

Uh...did you just break the article? It's not meant to look like that, is it?

Everything looks fine to me..... PM me what you mean and I'll check it out.

Edit: I read after he fixed but before he posted sorry

although if you wana get picky from the picture you can only tell it's a Myoviridae, not the T4 specifically
it could be any number of a hundred or so virus.

T4 just happens to be the most well known of the bunch

Screw it.

Bleach the world. Bleach all life. Bleach the universe. Life is to scary to continue to allow if it's natural.

Raise the machines as our forebears to wipe out all natural life once we commit universal suicide, to prevent ANY RISING OF ANYTHING SO CREEPY AS THAT LEECH AGAIN.

That last picture kinda hit closer to home then I would've liked given recent familial problems but it was an interesting article all in all.

All the best to you and your family.

1st image: Some sort of eel or jawless fish maybe?

Bloody zooids, being interesting and different from everything else.

2nd image: That's a virus.

Okay, that was easy.

3rd image: Tongue shrimp.

Yep, still gross.

4th image: A starfish or brittle star maybe?

Yay, although I've never seen that one before.

5th image: Some sort of worm I'm guessing although I'm not sure what that red thing is.

Well I was half right...

6th image: Pollen on insect chitin maybe.

Damn, way off.

7th image: Hrrrmmmmmm... kind of generic... I'm guessing dried organic matter like body fluids or something.

So close, kinda.

You got the starfish when I guessed a fungus. Other than that, you had the same ideas and reactions I did. Yay?

Hm, got most right except for the first one and the sludge. Oh, and the fish-tongue one too. And I just had to go and see the entirety of that leech/worm video. That was rather fascinating....especially how the worm was pale at the end, and that spurt of blood signifying its end.

Did not realize there were these kind of articles in here, pleasantly surprised.
