Image of the Day: Green Eggs 

Spotted salamander (Ambystoma maculatum) embryos are tinted green by the oxygen-producing algae (Oophila amblystomatis) that grow inside.

New research demonstrates that green algae not only grow inside of a spotted salamander egg, but enter cells within its body. Thus far, this is the only example of endosymbiosis in a vertebrate.
