Caption: Predatory mites attacking each other. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a predatory dust mite (Cheyletus sp.) eating a member of its own species. These mites usually prey on house dust mites (Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus) but turn on each other when this usual food source is unavailable. Magnification unknown.
