Little tribute to Foraminifera

Little tribute to Foraminifera

Probably it is not the most interesting organism of the coral reef, but why not publicize it sometimes? (At least, I think it is a foraminifera :))

Here the wikipedia description. Quite interesting organisms actually.

    I’m just wondering, how big is it? How deep the water is?

      Dear Jane, thanks for your comment.
      It is approximately 1.5 cm diameter, there are many individuals in shallow waters between 1 and 5 meters, especially in the seagrass area. Some of them remains attached on seagrass’ leaves.

        It’s quite big, and very different from what I’ve seen (less than 500 mikrometers in diameter :)). Thanks for info. Hope to find them someday when I get back home 🙂
