Color enhanced scanning

#Repost @sciencesourcestock (@get_repost) ・・・ Color enhanced scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Cat hookworm buccal cavity (Ancylostoma braziliense). The adult parasites are small cylindrical worms 0.5, 1.5mm long. It has pairs of teeth on the ventral margin of the anterior buccal capsule (eating structure) to attach to the intestinal wall of a host. Adult females release eggs that exit the host in fecal material. Once in the soil eggs hatch into rhabditiform larvae which feed on bacteria and organic material, then mature to a non-feeding infective larval stage that can penetrate the skin of the host (such as humans or other cats). The migration into the skin produces a raised, red, twisting pattern on the skin. The larvae eventually invade the circulatory system and enter the heart and lungs. They migrate up through the bronchi and tracheae and are swallowed into the intestine where they further mature into adults that mate and lay eggs, completing the life cycle.

A sand wasp getting drunk on pollen early in the morning. Like others of the family I've seen before, they dig holes to lay their eggs. And provision them with prey for the larvae to feed on. Typical sting and paralyze to keep alive kinda hunters. While the adults themselves are quite happy getting high on nectar. Cerceris sp, Crabronidae. #wakeandbake #typical #drunk #sugarrush #pollen #nectar #pollinators #hunter #cerceris #crabronidae #wasp #hymenoptera #sandwasp #insect #entomology #bug #arthropod #invertebrate #fauna #animals #wildlife #thefarmchennai #madras #chennai #india #macro #nature #wild

Another new addition to the farm came today, Glomeris Pulchra is a pill millipede. Looking forward to the challenge, hopefully we can get them to thrive and breed. #theisopodfarm #isopods #invertebrate #isopod #millipede

Protogoniomorpha parhassus is a beautiful species of iridescent butterfly native to the rainforests of Africa. While at first glance they may look mostly white, they exhibit a wide range of coloration depending on which angle you view them at! . . . . . #bug #insect #butterfly #lepidoptera #invertebrate #arthropod #entomology #specimen #taxidermy #oddities #curiosity #display #design #vultureculture #dark #darkart #art #artist #instaart #instaartist #artistoninstagram #artwork #maker #creative #bugsofinstagram #butterfliesofinstagram #insectart #taxidermyart
