Nest-less eggs….

We think that the Morphoids that lay eggs don’t make nests, as every egg or group of eggs we’ve discovered has been sitting directly on the ground.  There is also never any Morphoids around, so we do not know which Morphoids are the ones laying the eggs.  Maybe, if we watch to see what hatches out of these eggs (if they’re not already dead), we’ll learn more about which Morphoid these belong to.

Here’s an image from our archives of Radiolaria in their natural habitat.

Question: Have you ever seen any dead Morphoids?

No.  I’ve never come across one.  I have seen bones, though.  Morphoids die in discrete locations and seem to decay very quickly.

Foraminifera Sighting! Eye Witness Account

Foraminifera Sighting Eye Witness from Jennifer Akkermans on Vimeo.

We think Elisabeth Cartwright has seen a Foraminifera! She was not sure what she had seen, but by her description, we think it was a Foraminifera.  Watch the video to learn more.

Whole Morphoid Eggs discovered!

We’ve discovered this…. “nest” of Morphoid eggs!  These appear to be the same type as the fragments we discovered earlier.
