that is pretty crazy and weird.
I LOVE it! A few of these could really improve my aquarium.
That is SO WEIRD. I wrote a sf story once about a single celled alien the size of a chair. I should have figured something like it already existed on earth.
VERY cool. Science for the Win!
The real question isn't, "how are they moving?" It's, "Where are they rolling to?" Thinking about the answer might keep you up at night. Or it might make you fantasize about how we could make actual grapes move on their own. I dream of a future willed with the delicious grapes that come to me on command. Or not.
Consider my mind blown. It's not even the possible implications for our ideas on the Cambrian explosion so much as that these creatures are 1.5 inches and still a single cell.(Ha, like Phil above me, I thought of shoggoths too, but I did just read Elizabeth Bear's "Shoggoths in Bloom" yesterday, so I think that's to be expected.)
That’s fascinating! When I wrote a trilogy of children’s fantasy adventure novels in which much of the action takes place under the ocean, I thoroughly enjoyed doing research about ocean life. Here are some of my favorite sea creatures:Interesting: LionfishBeautiful: Coral reef fishFunny: PufferfishWARNING: Truly horrific: Viper fish
I would have named them Bahama Mamas.
Printed and stapled into my writing journal––there's a story in that little conundrum. I mean, what if it's a grape that rolled off the deck of some luxury liner, its crew and guests having passed on a mutant virus to the poor, dejected fruit. At least now it appears to have some friends.
Weird, because it looks like a human egg!
OMG!!! It's those things from The Prisoner's Village!!AAAAAACCCKKK!!!
