Single Drop Of Seawater Magnified 25 Times Reveals Stomach-Churning Microscopic Creatures

If you unexpectedly swallow a mouthful of seawater, then you just ate a bizarre microfauna sneaking around in just a single drop of seawater.

This is the picture of a random splash of seawater magnified 25 times. It was captured by an award-winning National Geographic photographer David Liitschwager.

So next time you go to the beach, just be mindful that the taste of seawater isn’t just salt – it’s plankton – it’s a pack of micro-creatures which includes marine worms, fish eggs, crab larva, copepods, diatoms and many other enough to ruin your appetite.
