Proteus mirabilis bacterium, scanning electron micrograph (SEM). This Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium is covered in flagella (thread-like projections), which are used for locomotion. P. mirabilis forms a natural part of the intestinal flora in animals and humans, and is also found in water. However, it can be pathogenic, infecting the urinary tract or causing pneumonia or septicaemia. Magnification: x16,000 when printed 10 centimetres tall.
