A different kind of photo

Meet a fun guy*.

Pithomyces chartartum.

pithomyces-003

Actually, it’s more his (her?) spores. Which contain a toxin which cause facial eczema in sheep. Fun eh?

I’ve been spending the last 3 weeks studying this wee guy in the lab.

I though it was quite neat that he too has polka dots.
