Meet the Morphoids: Bacteriophages

Meet the Bacteriophages!

Well, the ones we managed to catch, anyway.  These little guys (only about 14″ long) hatched out of the pods we had been watching in the woods.  These guys move very quickly, and seem to be a herd animal – I can’t get one on it’s own to get a better look at it.  While they do vary a bit in size and shape, in general, all of the bacteriophages seem to be consistently part of a larger whole.  These guys seem to rally around the larger beings in their group…. could they possibly have a hierarchy, or a structured society like that of bees?
