Originally shared by Mike StayAll three creatures in that picture are the same scale.  From right to left, an amoeba, a paramecium, and a wasp.  It has only a hundredth the number of neurons as a typical housefly---only around 7400---but still manages to feed, mate, and parasitize millimeter-long thrips.  And to save space in its head, 95% of the neurons have no nucleus!
