Morphopodia: The Trailer

This is a short trailer for the Institute of Morphoid Research’s brand new documentary!

The film, Morphopodia: A Strange New World in Our Own Back Yard, follows Akkermans and the Institute of Morphoid Research as they study the Morphoids in detail.  Included are short segments on each of the Morphoids, including interviews with Akkermans herself, footage acquired by hidden cameras, action shots, and eye witness accounts.   The film offers a comprehensive overview of the IMR and the creatures it studies.

Bovinae Footage

This is footage someone sent to us this week…. He said was really excited because he caught this thing on camera, and it was like nothing he’d ever seen before.  We’ve seen it before though- it’s Bovinae!  It must not have seen the videographer, though, because it didn’t freeze.  The few times we’ve seen Bovinae, he’s been almost completely still.

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.
