Euglena Keychain

$23.75

mini-eoglena.pngThis keychain depicts Euglena, one of the most popular and commonly studied of the unicellular critters that abound in waters worldwide! This versatile organism, which can acquire nutrients both heterotrophically (by consuming external food), and autotrophically (through photosynthesis) has amazed scientists since the dawn of microscopy, and was one of the first hints that the traditional division of life into two kingdoms (plants and animals) was insufficient.

A hinge concealed at one end of this keychain allows you to peer within, at Euglena's internal structure. Chloroplasts, paramylon bodies, and other structures are all depicted in exacting detail. A great educational keepsake that will change the way you think of pond scum forever!
