A foraminifer detected in the tidal flats of the German North Sea. Although looking like a little snail, foraminifera are unicellullar amoebae with shells from chalk. Some can grow to a size of more than 10 mm. This one is only 0.1 mm in diameter. (Picture composed by means of picolay from a stack of images with different focus levels.)
