Euglena gracilis are water-dwelling protists who are a great help in a biological laboratory. They are commonly used as an experimental model to test scientific theories on. It took many years for these microbes to be classified properly as they have characteristics of both plants and animals. It was only after a whole new Kingdom was added to the classification system, that they could be appropriately named.

Giant Microbes make excellent teaching aids as they assist students to develop an understanding of biology while taking a fun, hands on approach. No dissection required here!

Not for children under three years of age as parts may dislodge and become a choking hazard.

Euglena is 190mm long, 65mm wide and 35mm thick, made of dark green medium pile polyester plush with polyester filling and plastic eyes. It also has organelles embroidered in green and solver thread and a 140mm green flagellum.
