Under a very low magnification of 5X, this photograph depicted a close view of a Petri dish culture plate, upon which colonies of Bacillus anthracis bacteria had been cultivated. In this view, a single colony was featured, which exhibited a classic medusa-head, or judge's wig morphology, a term given to colonies whose edges resemble a tangled mass of curly hair.
