Gonyaulax

Like Aggi’s other friend Ceratium, Gonyaulax is also a type of protist known as a dinoflagellate. Like all dinoflagellates, Gonyaulax has two thread-like flagella which he can use to make him move through the water that he lives in.

Gonyaulax (GON-ee-o-LAX) is a protist with super powers! He can produce a toxin that is very dangerous to much bigger animals than him, like fish and even humans. Gonyaulax can also glow in the dark! If he gets together with a lot of his friends they can make the water sparkle with light.
