    Radiolarians (also radiolaria) are amoeboid protozoa that produce intricate mineral skeletons, typically with a central capsule dividing the cell into inner and outer portions, called endoplasm and ectoplasm. They are found as plankton throughout the ocean, and because of their rapid turn-over of species, their tests are important diagnostic fossils found from the Cambrian onwards. Some common radiolarian fossils include Actinomma, Heliosphaera and Hexadoridium.​

    Pretty cool stuff. They look kind of like the fractal images I draw.

    Radiolarians are small things that make cool exoskeletons (skeletons found on the outside of the body). Found as small floaty things in big water surrounding Earth (which is our planet). Evolve (change) quick. Important for Earth fossil timeline information.

    In summary: they tiny cool things in water

    Yes, the symmetry and fractal patterns are pretty amazing. Many people don't realize that something so small, can be so complex and beautiful. Even things like viruses can be beautiful under a microscope.

    Radiolarians are nature's druggies.
