Diatom. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the wall of the diatom Thalassiosira sp.. Thalassiosira is an ocean diatom that is a major participant in the biological pumping of carbon to ocean depths and that has potential for mitigating global climate change. Diatoms are single-celled photosynthetic algae, of which there are about 100,000 species, that have mineralised cell walls (frustules) that contain silica and provide protection and support.
Keep your furry and feathery friends close, whether they are a galloping stallion or a dog taking a selfie. Our gallery is here to turn empty walls into a cute and quirky display of animal art.
Psst! Did you know chimpanzees, elephants, and dolphins are some of the most intelligent mammals out there?
