LARGEST BACTERIUM EVER DISCOVERED CAN BE SEEN WITH THE NAKED EYE
Mega Shark against Giant Octopus, which is currently streaming on Peacock, follows the long-standing tradition of putting people against startlingly enormous versions of common animals
When those stories challenge our preconceived notions of how the world can act and challenge us to accept the demise of those preconceived notions
we experience shock and adventure.
Although we haven't found extremely enormous sharks or octopuses, at least not ones that are still alive
contrary to what we've seen on the big screen, that doesn't mean we don't occasionally come across extraordinarily massive species lurking in less-traveled regions of the globe.
In reality, a gigantic bacteria known as Candidatus Thiomargarita magnifica has just been identified by experts as one of the smallest giants in the world.
The team of researchers who found and characterised a new species of bacterium whose size defies all expectations included Jean-Marie Volland and Tanja Woyke
The journal Science reported the findings of their investigation.
Ca. T. magnifica has, up until recently, eluded scientific observation and investigation despite being huge enough to be easily seen with the naked eye
In fact, it's possible that the reason it was overlooked is because it's so big and doesn't match any of our previous criteria.
