Interesting info., Kevin. Thanks for the link.

That is an actual image of Toxoplasma gondii you used, and isn't it kind of pretty?

Maureen, i agree about the appearance of this pest. So many of the microbial denizens of our planet are truly amazing to behold. Always loved my microscope when I had one.
