It is really interesting to me how these cells must re-create the entire structure of the cell during asexual reproduction. I was particularly struck by the symmetry displayed in this picture.

Charlie, that is another "Wow!" image. Has a beautiful liquid three-dimensional quality. I feel like I could stick them with a fork. The detail is phenomenal.

I agree, "WOW" Exclamation Very Happy

I've only seen this once, myself. I was able to get some short video clips of the connected pair. What struck me at the time I saw the Euplotes undergoing fission the Paramecium in the same sample were undergoing fission, too. I wonder if there is some sort of environmental trigger that causes mass fission in protists. As always, a beautiful image, Charlie Very Happy

Best regards as always, my friend Very Happy
