11 creepy monsters, which does not see without a microscope
As ordinary people, not scientists, we do not think about that microscopic life that surrounds us constantly. But if we were suddenly reduced to a few thousand times, it would have been in a world populated by such terrible monsters here:
For us, this object is associated with a home warmth, comfort and comfort.
If you do not look at it through a microscope ...
Meet - dermatophagoides pteronyssinus or house dust mite. These beings you cuddle cheek every night. In your bed these creatures are not less than a billion.
Of course, we do not have any information about what the playboy crawling over your face while you sleep, but ... who they were forbidden?
2 worms that live in underwater hydrothermal vents
In the past it was believed that at great depths in the ocean beings there.
However, on closer examination, the organisms there, at the bottom, we found a lot, especially near hydrothermal vents. For example, here this polychaete worm:
Approximately so each of us used to see language in the mirror.
But if you look closer, much closer ...
human tongue is covered with tiny papillae, which are called filiform papillae. It looks like a bent back of a mountain troll. In fact, these nipples do many useful things, for example, feeling the pressure and help to move food in the mouth.
As it looks to the naked eye, then we will not show - that's why there are lots of specialized sites. Let's move immediately to the cellular level:
Blue serpentine tentacles - is not nothing but a sperm and membranous purple sphere - the egg.
So they look, until they meet. But what happens to them directly during the act of love:
Of course, the process of which was captured on these pictures, place in a test tube. For his study of science in the natural environment of the microscope is not yet invented. Luckily. And why - the result would be absolutely the same. And of course, there is a chance of pregnancy, when two souls are merged to give birth to the third and so on. And that's how it looks under the microscope:
To the naked eye the most butterflies lovely insects in the world. Their silk wings painted like stained glass.
But if we look at under the microscope ...
This face is unlikely to cause tenderness. Why her the feathers on the face? And five thousand eyes? And okay, adults, but, it would seem, all young in the world of fauna is supposed to be very pretty. And these - here:
The human eye 6.
Eyes - the first thing you notice when you meet with the other person. Well, not always the first, but still, hardly anyone would dispute the assertion that the beauty and expressiveness of the eyes - this is important. Fortunately, we do not usually consider the strangers under the microscope, because otherwise likely to be fascinated, "the beauty of the eyes" would have been much less.
Blue Lake - a pupil and orange pudding around him - the iris.
How do I look normal size eyelashes, we all know.
But that is detected under the electron microscope:
It turns out that our usual eyelashes are home to tiny creatures known as Demodex.
They live in the eyelashes of people and feed on dead skin cells and fat that accumulates in the follicles. There, in the eyelashes, and reproduce by laying at a time up to 25 eggs.
8. The larvae of bees-recluse
These bees differ in that they do not like to live in a group. Therefore, they are left to carry out all the functions inherent in the mind: to breed, build nests and store food for the offspring.
The larvae of bees look like regular, unremarkable worms:
But the electron microscope ...
These sad eyes beady and stacked at the mouth legs will never forget.
He and without a microscope looks pretty unpleasant:
And if we increase:
Every day in toothpaste commercials we hear that in plaque is full of bacteria. But who would believe the advertising? Microscope - is another matter. He would not lie. So look:
That's true. Dental plaque is not just teeming with bacteria. It is composed of bacteria and their metabolic products are 100 percent!
Vegetable aphids appears to the naked eye like a small green watermelon seed, not terrible any other insect. The most unpleasant in them - a habit to gather large crowds:
But if you look closer ...
Under the electron microscope, like a severe aphid guards some fabulous tower.
And it's not so far from the truth as it seems. Ants aphids give birth to as pets, herding them like cattle and even milk!
Truth. Ant mustache tickles his aphid, and that allocates sweet liquid - a favorite delicacy ant (in scientific terms this is called myrmecophily). That's ants and aphids drag on the juiciest grass - to better milked. When moving to a new place to live, then, usually, and aphids, the nurse does not forget.
11. Suckers squid
the naked eye:
squid - it is, in essence, ocean birds. They have a beak, they present formidable predators and large enough to most of the other inhabitants of the deep sea was a reason to be afraid of them.

It is not even on the photo does not look like. Most advertising funds from heartburn. But this is the most that neither is a real photo. In 2008, she won the first prize at the international competition "Visualization in Science and Technology" in the nomination "absolutely real photos", untouched by photoshop. So squid sucker really covered by hundreds of hungry toothy mouths.
