World's largest cell

4 Feb 2010

New Scientist has a fascinating story about the little-known Syringammina fragilissima, a single-celled species that can reach an astonishing 10cm across! Outside the usual definition of a cell, Syringammina contains several nuclei and though speculative, it might feed by farming bacteria inside itself. It really is amazing how life adapts and evolves.

Whatever form or strategy, surviving works.
