True, so true.......

Ah, but then you would have missed the 'fascinating' information!......

Oh, I wish I had thought of that for my title, instead of what I did! Dang, whatnauts, where were you when I needed you?! :-)))

I thought this was going to be a partial map of Bonga Bonga, but it has turned out to be a science lesson...

I'll see what I can do, Kathy!

It was a struggle, Mandy, and I'm not sure I caught the right one, but let's keep out fingers crossed!

Pat - is this the bug that has been infecting us!!! If so, well done for capturing it :)))

I perceive a candidate for macronization (the process of making a puzzle larger)!

Well, that was fascinating! Who'd a thunk I was drawing such technical stuff?! The closest I came to a description was an amoeba, but I knew it wasn't quite right, so I decided it was a special organism called a loony--maybe it's what makes tadpole secretions so magical?! Thanks, Wendy, Lela, and Ardy!

Pat, these are much prettier than the amoeba and paramecia we drew in 9th grade science class. Of course if thee are mitochondria that would probably explain it. Mitochondria play a major role in Madeleine L'Engle's book, "A Wind In the Door." a sequel to her "A Wrinkle In Time." Makes a lovely and most interesting puzzle.

Mr. Bugosi, I just happened to remember mitochondria from a science class in high school, and when I saw this, it reminded me of it, so to refresh my memory I did a search....and sure enough, Pat's creation looks pretty much like what I thought. HOWEVER, as far as it being "fascinating" information...I'm not so sure.

Thank you Wendy for the fascinating information:
"The mitochondrion is an extremely interesting and important organelle in eukaryotic cells. It is the only organelle (other than the nucleus, of course) that has its own DNA independent of the cell's chomosomal DNA; because of this and the fact that the organelle divides independent of the cell, the mitochondrion is thought to have once been a bacterial cell that colonized a eukaryotic cell. Among other things, it performs cellular respiration, has an eletron transport system that occurs across membranes, and produces ATP."

More specifically, mitochondria...
