| Heliozoida is a
one-celled animal, somewhat spherical, with radiant silicon-laced
tentacles going out in all directions to catch bacteria in the water.
The name relates to his "sun" shape. How so much life can operate in
one tiny cell fascinates me, as does the study of other protozooa. In
that sense, Heliozoida is also a kind of totem animal.
| Salamandre is
the name of a fire-sprite, one who lives in fires, dances with their
combustion, becomes dormant as they go "out." You have to speed
up your vision by a factor of 20 to see his dance, as he moves as
quickly as a hummingbird's wing.
