    What an amazing creature! The tip of the 'nose' looks man-made!

    We're buying a new vacuum cleaner tomorrow. Just as well it's bagless. Otherwise I'd be thinking of this photo every time I emptied it.

    There's more images of it here ... http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/p...lleryid=270945

    Wow! Thanks for this William, I've never heard of or seen these little critters before, they are amazing. Their resemblance to a vacuum cleaner dust bag is a bit eery too. I think someone should offer NASA some CC on that pic, if they're 1mm long, that's a great photo (electron microscope not withstanding).

    And thanks to MarkL too, for his additional link, cheers Deb
