Why Planeta Acocil? Because if you and I were very...very small
we would see any crayfish (acocil in Spanish) egg very...very big!
How small should we be?
Well, the crayfish egg is about 2 millimeters (2000 micrometers)
in diameter, so we should be much smaller than that!
How about 1 micrometer tall or wide?
There are "creatures" smaller than that. I've seen these creatures
under the microscope so many times. They do not have "eyes" like ours, but they "see" or sense the big crayfish eggs. They
visit them. They live around them. They use them as nests. They feed from them, when the eggs die.
Here I will show you these creatures. I will also fantasize, and
make you imagine things. This is a Biology Science orientated site as well as science fictional. You'll get a close view of
fertilized crayfish eggs during their development.
Most of the isolated crayfish eggs shown in this site have now
grown to be medium sized adults and have reproduced at least once.
Welcome to the Planeta Acocil!
