Jewel Anemones- The modest jewel anemone (Corynactis haddoni) may well be one of the most interesting animal species as it exhibits a high degree of colour variability.Like other anemones, the jewel anemone can reproduce asexually by splitting, which leads to clusters of identically coloured clones, and these patches join up to amazing quilt works of gaudy colours. The jewel anemone does not have long thinning tentacles but short ones, ending in knobs.

Radiolarian, SEM, Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the shell of a radiolarian. Radiolaria are single-celled protozoans that are found in marine plankton. This radiolarian has a spherical silicate skeleton with pores through which pseudopodia (false feet, not seen) of protoplasm project. As the animal floats in ocean currents the pseudopodia trap food particles on which the radiolarian feeds. Magnification: x435 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
