But this time we found bacteria that can be seen with the naked eye! It is about 50 times larger than normal bacteria.

Bacteria have been identified in a study published in the journal Science. The name of this protozoan is ‘Theomargarita magnifisa’. According to the researchers, normal bacteria do not grow more than 1 to 5 micrometers long. But the length of these bacteria is 10 thousand micrometers. That’s like four tenths of an inch. They are roughly as long as an eyelid. As a result, they can be seen swearing with the naked eye.

The biggest difference is that their vacuoles are very long. But scientists have not found an explanation for why it is so long. But it is believed that they have become taller by adapting to survive from being the food of small creatures.
